‘Kill Yourselves’: Texas Teacher on Leave After Profane Ferguson Tweet

A Texas high school teacher has been placed on leave and may be fired after a tweet she sent out about Ferguson directed at “dumb duck ass crackers” and telling people “kill yourselves.” Here’s the tweet in question, which has since been deleted (along with the Twitter account):

Vinita Hegwood tweeted that out on Friday night. The Duncanville school district was quick to condemn her remarks as “absolutely reprehensible, and today school officials are saying that she’s been placed on leave without pay.

WFAA reached out to Hegwood’s husband. He didn’t say much about the tweet, just that there’s more to the story.
