(January 6, 2016) – Chances are you also probably know some quotes from the movie. However, one police department is facing backlash from using a phrase on its Facebook page!

Warwick Police arrested an 18-year-old Sunday for stealing hubcaps off a marked police car.

The department then posted the teen's mug shot on its Facebook page, with the caption, "Stupid is as stupid does."

But it didn't sit well with the suspect's brother, who spoke out against the use of the word stupid.

The post was later changed, and the department says it is now reviewing its social media policy.
