Elementary School Teacher Makes Autistic Student Cry When She Snatches His Microphone During Thanksgiving Play — See How Parents Reacted!

no title

How is this woman allowed to teach children? Educators are responsible for molding young minds, not inhibiting them.

A teacher at Nutter Fort Primary School recently proved she's much more of a garbage human than an educator when she rudely yanked the microphone away before an autistic student could say "gobble gobble" in the Thanksgiving play.

The young boy, named Caleb, was playing the turkey in the production, so it's not like the line would've been distracting or upsetting. It actually would have been a really cute way to close the show.

But, the West Virginia teacher horrified the young boy — and his parents — when she snatched the mic just as the child was leaning in for his big moment.

The little boy was so devastated that he yelled "Oh no!" on stage before bursting into tears. And his parents, Kent Squires and Amanda Riddle caught the disgusting snub and the following devastation all on camera.

Outraged, they took to Facebook to spread the word about the horrible excuse for a teacher, who Amanda tentatively identified as "Mrs. Linsey."

In his plea to Autism Speaks, Kent shared the video, writing:

50 cent donates autism speaks

50 Cent certainly feels bad for making fun a teenager with autism on social media.

How do we know this? Well, because the Candy Shop rapper just threw down a sizable chunk of change to Autism Speaks because of the unfortunate incident.

As you may recall, Fiddy was facing a potential lawsuit after he accused Andrew Farrell of being high at work in a Twitter video, when the youngster actually suffered both autism and Asperger's syndrome. Initially, the family was seeking to get $1 million for the 19 year old's GoFundMe page but then lessened their request by asking the A-lister to give $10,000 to the autism advocacy group.

Diane Kruger & Joshua Jackson Get Gussied Up For The Blue Jean Ball

Diane Kruger and Joshua Jackson dress up for Autism Speaks in El Lay!

So many parties, so little time! But never at a loss for clothes!

Diane Kruger and Joshua Jackson partied at the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund dinner on Wednesday night and had the energy to attend the Autism Speaks' third annual Blue Jean Ball at Boulevard 3 in El Lay the next day.

Diane was simply chic in a textured Emilia Wickstead coatdress of a soft blush pink hue, which she spiced up with hot red pumps and Charlotte Olympia clutch.

We love pink and red together! Haters be damned!

Joshua cooled things down with his dark blue suit, and both long-time lovahs had cute baby blue pins on their persons in honor of the event.

Dawww!

We never knew he had any issues, but apparently Bo Bice had been hitting the bottle a little bit too hard in the past. Fortunately, the American Idol alum has been sober since last October!

While appearing at an Autism Speaks event in Nashville, the singer revealed:

Here's something you don't see everyday.

Martha Stewart and Vera Wang went to White Castle on Wednesday night, but it's not because they had the munchies.

The Queen of Crafts and wedding gown designer were spotted at the fast food joint in Herald Square to support Nest Fragrances' White Castle scented candle, which raises money for Autism Speaks.

See, it was for a good thing.

Ewwwww!

Just in time for National Hamburger Month, fast-food chain White Castle has come out with their own candles.

The burger scented candles come in a ceramic White Castle box just like their sliders do.

They only cost $10 and net proceeds will go toward Autism Speaks.

We're sure Harold and Kumar already have theirs!

Thoughts???
