CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCSC) - A teacher assistant from Angel Oak Elementary School has resigned following inappropriate comments made on social media.

The Charleston County School District confirmed it placed a teacher assistant on administrative leave while the district investigated allegedly inappropriate comments made on social media.

The post was shared on Facebook by a CCSD employee and was about the entire Georgetown University basketball team taking a knee during the national anthem during the NCAA tournament. The article the employee shared pointed out the team went on to lose its match up against Colorado 96-73.

With the share of the article, the employee reportedly wrote, “That Karma... she surely is a b****” and added four laughing emojis.

Another person commented on the post, asking, “Didn’t slaves kneel for their masters?”

The CCSD employee then replied to that comment, saying, “Excellent point!!!”
