The mother of a freshman at a North Texas high school has responded to the viral video of her daughter cursing out and assaulting a Black female teacher.
Brittany Evans told local news channel WFAA that she was appalled at the video of her child cursing the educator out at Castleberry High School in Fort Worth. She also claimed the potty-mouthed teen was autistic, bipolar and suffered from depression.
Although Evans admitted that her daughter’s behavior was foul, she also tried to blame the school for mislabeling her child and not tending to her special needs. The mother stated that she’d had more than ten meetings regarding her daughter’s issues.
“I was upset for the teacher,” she told the news outlet. “I was upset for her even being in that situation.”
“I wish the school would label her correctly, so we didn’t have to go through this,” she added.
Evans also said that she didn’t know where her daughter learned to be a racist.
“I know I don’t throw racial slangs ever,” she said. “I know none of my family members that live in the house with me throw racial slangs ever.”
Her “conditions” do not absolve the freshman of her egregious behavior.
On Nov. 19, another student allegedly recorded the incident with a cellphone. The student hit the teacher as she seemingly called for assistance after walking toward her to use the phone inside the classroom. The video revealed the freshman hit the teacher on the arm while screaming at the woman to “deal with her.”
The teacher tried to defuse the situation and backed away. The raging student called her mom to rant.
“I need you to get over here now because this teacher is about to get f****d up if she doesn’t get the f**k away from me,” the girl screamed to Evans.
“You want to talk to her because she’s Black, and she’s f*****g pissing me off right now,” the young Karen-in-training yelled before throwing the phone at the educator.
The Castleberry school district applauded the teacher for her patience and professionalism during the chaotic incident. It also said that the girl’s behavior was unacceptable.
“Harassment, racism and violence against our teachers will not be tolerated at Castleberry ISD, and we will take swift and effective action to protect our teachers so that they can perform their duties and educate students in a safe environment.”

Although the local authorities were notified, the district still has to determine what punishment the insolent girl will receive.
