An Adamson High School teacher is having 15 very bad minutes of fame.
The teacher, Payal Modi, posted an 8-second video to Instagram in which she uses a water gun to shoot an image of Donald Trump while yelling “Die!” It is unclear whether students were in the classroom.
The video made Fox News and virtually every other conservative news outlet.
Dallas ISD placed Modi, who teaches art, on administrative leave pending an investigation.
The video was uploaded to Modi’s Instagram account Jan. 20. She made her account private, but not before the video was unleashed on the internet.
Fox News reports that the post’s caption read, “Watching the #inauguration in my classroom like…#no #stop #denial #squirtgun #hypocrisy #powerless #saveusall #teachthembetter #atleastitsfriday.”
That outlet called the post, “…yet another example of how our public schools have been turned into social engineering petri dishes festering with rancorous rhetoric and hate.”
