A Virginia high school student was told to change his ``Duck Dynasty'' T-shirt because school officials feared it might be misinterpreted as promoting violence.

The offending T-shirt showed one of the characters from the reality TV show clenching his fist with the message, ``I will hurt you physically and metaphysically.''

Edna-Jo Spain told WWBT-TV in Richmond her son Hunter was told Wednesday to turn the shirt inside-out or go home. He slipped into another T-shirt.

Superintendent David Clark said the shirt's message could be misinterpreted by non-viewers. He said the rural Virginia school district likes to keep messages on students' shirts ``as non-violent as possible.''

Set in Louisiana bayou country, ``Duck Dynasty'' follows a brood of brothers who manufacture duck calls and love to go bird hunting.
