Video Shows Teacher Call Student 'Piece of S**t' for Allegedly Wearing Mask Improperly

When a teacher caught a student allegedly wearing his mask below his nose, the teacher threatened him with in-school suspension, and called him a "piece of s**t." The moment was captured on cellphone video and has since gone viral on Twitter. According to officials with the school, the teacher has resigned.

Libs of TikTok posted the video to its Twitter account on September 5. Already, the video has been viewed more than 300,000 times. The account did not name the source of the video.

The video's captions read: "My friend had his mask under his nose, and this Karen went crazy. Got up in his face and cuzed [sic] at him."

At the beginning of the video, the teacher threatens to call the police. When the student asks if he's serious, the teacher responds: "Yeah, I am serious, man. I have had enough. I knew you were gonna take off your mask the moment I turned the corner."

It is not clear if the student removed his mask or not. In the only frame where the student is visible, he has a mask on his face; however, Newsweek was not able to confirm if he put this on before or after the heated exchange.

As the teacher walks away, he tells the student to "enjoy" in-school suspension. He then calls him a "piece of s**t" before rounding the corner and disappearing from frame.

The account identified the teacher as Scott Grigoletto with Glenbard North High School in Carol Stream, Illinois.

On Wednesday, Glenbard North's principal John Mensik released a statement regarding the incident.

"It is important that we maintain a positive school culture based on mutual respect for each other. You may have seen, or heard of, a video regarding a Glenbard North student and staff member," he began.

"Please know that this situation is being investigated. I ask that you trust that we will handle this situation in an appropriate manner," he continued.

Illinois Governor J.B. Pritzker announced on August 4 that all schools throughout the state would be required to adhere to special mask requirements. In a press release, the government said:

"In preparation for the start of the upcoming school year and in response to the highly contagious Delta variant, all students, teachers, and staff at pre-kindergarten—12th-grade schools and daycares will be required to wear masks regardless of vaccination status, effective immediately.

"This guidance is in line with recommendations from the CDC," the release continued.

The CDC recommends wearing masks that fully cover the nose and mouth.

Mensik confirmed for Newsweek on Friday that Grigoletto has resigned and "will no longer be working in District 87."
