Six-Year-Old Kicked Off Cheerleading Squad After Mom Questions 'Booty' Cheer (VIDEO)

Six-year-old Kennedy Tesche was kicked off of a Michigan cheerleading squad after her mother questioned the appropriateness of a cheer. "Good Morning America" talked to the Tesche family on Friday, and Kennedy's mother Jennifer explained that she took issue with the chant, "Our backs ache, our skirts are too tight, we shake our booties from left to right," calling it outdated and stereotypical. However, the league voted to keep the cheer and bump Kennedy from the team. She can rejoin next year on probation but her mom says they won't be coming back. Kennedy told the cameras, "I think I'll miss the cheers."
