Cello Teacher Shares The Racist ‘Thank You’ Letter She Received From The Mother Of One Of Her Students

Published 4 years ago

It’s always nice to hear feedback from your students and their parents when you’re working as a teacher. But not when you get personally attacked by one of your student’s parents.

One cello teacher recently shared a “thank you” letter she received from the mother of one of her students to Twitter. The letter starts out pretty tame with the mother thanking the teacher for helping her son pass his cello exam but soon takes an unexpected turn. The mother then begins to complain about an “ethnic stench” coming off of her son’s clothes every time he comes back from the lessons and says she doesn’t want him “smelling Indian in public”. Unsurprisingly, the teacher wasn’t having any of that and responded to the not-so-subtly racist letter.

The racist letter quickly went viral, getting nearly 300k likes and 66k reshares on Twitter in just a few days. The teacher ended up reporting the student’s parents to social services for not taking proper care of him.

People supported the teacher for not staying quiet about the racist letter

One day, this guy just kind of figured - "I spend most of my time on the internet anyway, why not turn it into a profession?" - and he did! Now he not only gets to browse the latest cat videos and fresh memes every day but also shares them with people all over the world, making sure they stay up to date with everything that's trending on the web. Some things that always pique his interest are old technologies, literature and all sorts of odd vintage goodness. So if you find something that's too bizarre not to share, make sure to hit him up!

Got wisdom to pour?
