The unidentified teacher was fired from the charter school.
A Broward County teacher was fired after a video of her interrupting Muslim students while in prayer went viral.
The teacher, who has not yet been identified, worked at Franklin Academy, a charter school in Pembroke Pines.
The video starts with tranquil music and a couple of boys reciting an Islamic prayer in Arabic.
Shortly after, you can hear the teacher saying, “Hold on, this in my office and y’all doing this magic?”
A woman identified as another teacher barges in and starts blowing a whistle.
The teacher is then heard saying, “I believe in Jesus so I’m interrupting the floor.”
The same teacher appeared to step or kick the boys’ hands as she walked over their mats.
The video was posted on TikTok Wednesday and has already racked up over five million views.
Wilfredo Ruiz, of the Council on American and Islamic Relations, told Local 10 News’ Cody Weddle that the video is “repulsive” and that the teacher’s actions were a clear case of bullying.
“To see a teacher expressing so much hate and bullying students when teachers are supposed to be the ones that protect the students and protect their good doings, such as this one,” Ruiz said.
