I thought this was an article from The Onion, but it's actually legit. The voice actress for the beloved Dora the Explorer character pressured her friend to vape while in the school bathroom. The two were caught, and Ptacek was suspended for three days, but her friend was expelled indefinitely. This prompted the expelled kid's parents to file a lawsuit against the school for giving Ptacek special treatment for being the voice of a cartoon.
I think this is true. I wouldn't want to suspend Dora, either. I remember something similar to this happened to Kristen Cavallari from Laguna Beach and The Hills. She said in an interview years fter high school that her marine biology teacher would excuse all her absences after Laguna Beach started airing.
