A Los Angeles-area public school has come under fire after a video of a teacher and students hitting a Donald Trump pinata was posted online.
A teacher at a Saddleback Valley United High School has reportedly come under fire after a video of a class hitting a Donald Trump pinata went viral online. The incident allegedly happened during a Spanish class but school officials have refused to provide details, including the teacher’s name.
“This activity was not condoned, or approved, by the district, nor Laguna Hills High School”, said district spokesperson Mark Perez said in a comment to a local CBS affiliate. “Personnel matters are confidential, and therefore, it is our policy to not comment on situations involving employees.”
A tweeted highlighted by Yahoo News claims that two Spanish teachers were suspended after the video of the class went viral online. “Two of our Spanish teachers were suspended as of today because of a Donald Trump piñata. We thought it was okay to use one for a quince and our teachers did too. Apparently it was just way too much and “disgraceful” according to the office,” the user wrote.
Like yeah, some of us dislike the president but that's okay. None of us, even those who support Trump, saw it as disgraceful, aggressive or disruptive in any means. I'm not a fan on how the school handled the situation tbh.
