Magic Hobbit Ring Suspension: Boy Wanted to Make Classmate 'Disappear'

A 9-year-old Texas boy was suspended from school after pretending to have the magic Hobbit ring from "The Lord of the Rings" and its prequel, telling a schoolmate that he would make him "disappear."

Aiden Steward had recently watched “The Hobbit: The Battle of Five Armies” with his family when he took his imagination to school in Kermit, Texas, his father, Jason Steward, told the New York Daily News.

When he heard that his son was suspended for making terroristic threats — saying he’d make someone disappear — Steward told the Daily News it was "unbelievable."

"Kids act out movies that they see. When I watched Superman as a kid, I went outside and tried to fly," he said.

"I assure you my son lacks the magical powers necessary to threaten his friend’s existence," Steward wrote in an email about his son’s claim that he could put a magic Hobbit ring on a boy’s head and make him invisible, the Daily News said. "If he did, I'm sure he'd bring him right back."

The Odessa American said the school refused to comment on confidential matters.

The Daily News reported that Aidan had previous in-school suspensions for referring to another child in the school as “black” and also for bringing "The Big Book of Knowledge" to school, according to his father.

“He loves that book. They were studying the solar system and he took it to school. He thought his teacher would be impressed,” Steward told the Daily News. But the book contained a section on pregnancy, including a picture of a pregnant woman in an illustration. That apparently got the boy in trouble.

The Internet was in an uproar over the school punishing a child’s imagination.
