School officials at Eastside High School in Lancaster, California, released a statement in regards to the student, who was identified as Gideon Yapp.


“We take this type of situation very seriously. Our teachers’ safety is of the utmost importance to us. The incident has been investigated and appropriate action by school administration has been taken,” said Dr Kristen Tepper, Principal of Eastside High School.


An unnamed white male student went on a rage against his Asian teacher, whom he called Dr. Hsu.


The incident, of course, was captured and posted on social media, so it’s only a matter of time before both the student and school are identified.

The student, of course, also referred to his teacher by the n-word several times as his classmates just sat there. Unfortunately, the video doesn’t show what set off the student. Toward the end, another student laughingly tells the boy that he needs to leave.

I don’t know who this Dr. Hsu is, but good lord, where’s a resource officer when you need one?

Bye, Kinja! It's been fun (occasionally).
