    Cyberbulling isn't the only way that Facebook can get kids suspended from school.

    Changing your status to hurl insults at your teachers can also get you suspend as Donny Tobolski learned.

    The high school sophomore at Sacramento's Mesa Verde High School was suspended for one day after he reportedly wrote his biology teacher is "fat ass who should stop eating fast food, and is a douchebag"

    The remarks were made after Mr. Cimino reportedly assigned his students "three times more homework than usual in December."

    The school was told about the remarks and subsequently suspended Tobolski for "cyberbulling."

    The American Civil Liberties Union took offense with the school's decision and sent a letter saying Tobolski's free speech rights had been violated.
