Texas Curly Haired Cheerleader Kicked Off Squad

A mother in Tomball, Texas is speaking out claiming her daughter was kicked off the cheerleading squad because of her curly hair.

Makayla Fallaw, 11, and her mom claim officials at Woodlands Elite Cheer told her she needed to straighten her hair to match the straight hairstyles of her teammates.

Fallaw's mom was so outraged she met with officials of Woodlands Elite Cheer to tell them why straightening would be a bad idea for her daughter's hair.

Officials at the center said they were willing to compromise, but chose to kick the girl off the team because her mom refused to consider any other options. 

Mother Jenny Fallaw said she plans to send her daughter to another cheer company.
