From the President of the United States to Mark Zuckerburg and Aziz Ansari, famous faces are standing with Ahmed Mohamad after the Texas Muslim teen was arrested for bringing a clock to school one teacher thought resembled a bomb.
President Obama even invited the teen to visit the White House WITH the notorious clock.
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.

#IStandWithAhmed cause I was once a brown kid in the south too. Plus sure he'll lead an amazing life & I'm trying to get in the bio pic game
