A Texas elementary teacher was fired Tuesday after a series of “alarming, racist statements” was found on her social media account.
Danielle Allen, whose online alias was Claire Kyle, was placed under investigation after the Mesquite Independent School District learned of her shocking online persona on Monday.
The day the investigation launched, Allen met with the school board and falsely reported that her job was safe.
“Yes,” Allen posted on her since-deleted X account, previously known as Twitter. “Y’all have found my job. They told me to delete the post, but my job is safe since I did not directly wish harm on ALL white people. They laughed and told me to watch what I say and I’ll be good to go! Being a great teacher pays off very well when they know your true self.”
Mesquite ISD contradicted Allen claims in a statement Tuesday.
“As of this morning, the employee is no longer a part of the Mesquite ISD organization and is not eligible for rehire,” the statement read.
In August, Allen posted several times she was racist. “I enjoy being racist,” Allen wrote. “I’m never changing!”
In another post Allen admitted to hating white people. “Why shouldn’t I hate white people? Why should I show y’all any love at all? Name a big historical moment where white people did anything for black people out of the kindness of y’all’s hearts???”
Allen later posted a screenshot of her text messages where she asked her significant other to kill a white male, presumably her sister’s new boyfriend.
“Come and kill him for me Dre,” Allen wrote. “I promise I’ll help you hide the body. Bring all 4 of your guns.”
The district maintains this is not a reflection of its schools’ values or standards.
“The highly offensive statements posted to her X account do not reflect the values and standards of Mesquite ISD, and the district condemns them in the strongest terms,” Mesquite ISD wrote.
Allen was a first-grade teacher at Thompson Elementary.
