Long Island school teacher Veronica Welsh has been reassigned after she claimed that students who wear Donald Trump hats and gear are 'racist'.
The Smithtown High School teacher wrote on her personal Facebook page that, “This week is Spirit Week at Smithtown HS West. It’s easy to spot which students are racist by the Trump gear they’re sporting for USA Day.”
The backlash came fast and furious.
MRU Trump hat: What do students really think?
Long Island News 12 readers spoke out saying, “I wouldn’t want this hateful bully anywhere near my children” and “She has no right to pass judgement on our children’s views or the views of their parents.”
Superintendent James Grossane called the Facebook post 'unfortunate'.
“This is an extremely unfortunate incident and these actions are not promoted by the Smithtown Central School District Administration and Board of Education, nor do they reflect the attitudes of our students and staff,” he said in a statement.
According to Newsday, Welsh has been administratively reassigned.
