Teen bullied for wearing a BIG hat speaks out
The 16-year-old was attacked by a man on a San Antonio burger joint for the wearing of a ‘Make America Great Again’ hat. Hunter, Richard shares his story.
A sixth grade social studies teacher is under investigation for a tweet comparing the Texas teen who had his “Make America Great Again” hat stolen in a Whataburger to a “Nazi” with the teacher, allegedly adding: “F – – – him”.
Houston-area Channelview Independent School District is investigating Jogi Pattisapu, who teaches sixth grade social studies at the Anthony Aguirre Junior High, for the vulgar tweet, Director of Communications for the school district LaKeisha LeBlanc told Fox News in a statement.
“Mr Pattisapu is a teacher at Channelview Independent School District. We are aware of the comments made on the social media,” LeBlanc said. “The district is taking this matter seriously and we are conducting an investigation.”
Pattisapu allegedly responded “exactly” to a tweet said the man — identified as Kino Jimenez, 30, who threw a big drink on a 16-year old Hunter Richard for stealing his “MAGA” hat — “had the totally correct answer.”
“This s—cake children r the same type is to wear a BIG hat to the African American museum,” the 4th of July tweet obtained by The Houston Chronicle reads in part. “The same douchebag kids that a Nazi salute in a class photo then claim that it was a joke. F— EM”
The private Twitter account in question allegedly describes Pattisapu as an atheist, a liberal, public school teacher and a son of immigrants.
The police arrested and charged Jimenez with theft and returned the hat to Richard, who also got a new “replacement” MAGA hat signed by President Trump.
