After #IStandWithAhmed went viral and the 14-year-old Irving teen’s story flooded social media, American President Barack Obama, world’s biggest tech leaders, and scientists and researchers came out to support, praise, and invite Ahmed Mohamed.
Cool clock, Ahmed. Want to bring it to the White House? We should inspire more kids like you to like science. It’s what makes America great.

Hey Ahmed, give me a call in a couple years. We could always use smart, curious & creative people. https://t.co/02a4feMrk5

Assumptions and fear don’t keep us safe—they hold us back. Ahmed, stay curious and keep building. https://t.co/ywrlHUw3g1

Despite the outpouring of support for Ahmed, including from President Obama and Hillary Clinton, Irving’s mayor did not share their outrage at the arrest.
Ahmed is the one who suffered, but he is happy and positive after the incident which would have been a torturous experience for any kid.
