A local drama teacher complained about a racially insensitive student she encountered and said that she “wanted to strangle the kid”.

According to a series of tweets she posted on Wednesday (July 17), she told the boy off on the spot in a rather inappropriate way.

When she came to class and introduced herself by saying “Hi my name is Ms Indu and my favourite food is…”, a boy in the class allegedly shouted out “CURRY. CHICKEN CURRY, MUTTON CURRY, FISH CURRY, BEEF CURRY”.

The teacher then tweeted, “So, instead of blowing up at this uncultured swine, I said “Actually my favourite food is Xiao Long Bao”. Then he was like”HUH GOT PORK EH! HOW COME U CAN EAT!””

She then went on to tell the boy, “saying BEEF curry was real offensive because Hindus can’t eat beef. So maybe watch your tone before you try and be funny because these kinds of things that you say is what will get you killed”.

“Because of people like you, riots and fights break out”, she told the nine year-old boy.

In her last tweet, she also said, “I wanted to strangle that kid but its (sic) okay. I think he heard me loud and clear”.

There were two camps of people – those who agreed with her for educating younger generations, and those who said that the teacher was too harsh on a young boy.

All of the teacher’s tweets have now been deleted, but she also wrote that moving forward, she would like to not teach drama classes to primary school children if she has more acting jobs to fall back on. /TISG
