What a complete idiot.

Believe it or not this is all true. Anthony Aguirre Junior High in Houston is the spot where a middle school principal is planning to launch an investigation after a 7th-grade student was named “most likely to become a terrorist” in a mock award ceremony. Wow. The student, 13-year-old Lizeth Villanueva, received the award in an advanced learning program that’s supposed to help kids prepare for college. When handed the award, the teacher told the students it was supposed to be funny. It wasn’t.

“It was not a joke,” Lizeth was quoted as saying. “I do not feel comfortable with this.”

Take a look at the award below thanks to Twitter.

Lizeth’s mother Ena said that the principal, Eric Lathan, actually apologized in person to her after he heard what went down, but she wants the teacher to get punished.

“Get fired, at least, or something,” Ena said.“It doesn’t look good at all, especially coming from a teacher, a grown-up woman. It doesn’t look good because everything that’s going on right now.”

The principal also took it to Twitter to apologize, calling the awards “insensitive and offensive.” You think?

“These award statements and ideals are not representative of the Aguirre vision, mission and educational goals for its students,” Lathan wrote. “An investigation will be launched into these events.”

So far the teacher has only been suspended, but it’s pretty clearly this woman is bonkers.
