A New Jersey high school teacher was removed from his position after he was recorded cursing at students and calling George Floyd a “f—— criminal” during a Zoom session.

Howard Zlotkin’s class at Dickinson High School in Jersey City began with a discussion on climate change before turning into an expletive-filled rant, NBC New York reported. It was not clear what prompted the shift in the conversation.

“If you think I’m privileged then f— you, because my daughter thinks I’m privileged and I don’t speak to her,” he said during the online class that was recorded and shared with the outlet.

This is the latest incident of educators across the country being caught during Zoom sessions making racist or offensive comments.
