Ever since the news broke about 9th grader Ahmed Mohamed getting arrested for bringing a homemade clock to school, #IStandWithAhmed has exploded and support has come from some very powerful people.
First, the President complimented the clock and extended an invite to the White House.
Cool clock, Ahmed. Want to bring it to the White House? We should inspire more kids like you to like science. It's what makes America great.— President Obama (@POTUS) September 16, 2015
Then Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg applauded Ahmed's ingenuity and desire to build. And also extended an invitation to the company.
Support also came from politicians, comedians and businesses.
But was Ahmed building a BLACK clock? #IStandWithAhmed— Patton Oswalt (@pattonoswalt) September 16, 2015
