A Slidell High School teacher has been fired after a Facebook post led to accusations of racism, The New Orleans Advocate reports.

The post, reportedly in a reply to a former student's post regarding former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick, read in part "Want to not be stereotyped, tell people of that color to quit acting like animals and perpetuating the stereotype."

A statement from the school said "This incident does not reflect our district's values, mission, and vision, and we remain committed to providing a school culture that is inclusive and meets the needs of all our students, employees, and community."
