A pair of school district employees in Oregon were placed on leave earlier this month after posting a TikTok video — apparently recorded on school property — featuring an F-bomb and the duo from Newberg Public Schools flipping off what some outlets say are people opposed to the LBGTQ agenda.
The pair lip synch a song by Gayle titled “ABCDEFU.” The lyrics audible in the clip are: “And I was tryin’ to be nice, but nothing’s getting through, so let me spell it out … ABCDEFU … and your mom and your sister and your job and your broke-ass car and that s**t you call art, f*** you.”
Part of the way into the clip they both issue double middle fingers to their targets while standing in front of a rainbow banner that reads, “We believe black lives matter, love is love, feminism is for everyone, no human being is illegal, science is real” — and ironically — “be kind to all.” Diagonal text superimposed near the top of video frame reads, “I don’t think that flag should be aloud in schools.”
The caption to the right of the video — from the account “crazybulldogs333” — reads as follows: “Our last video got taken down Let’s see how long this one will last.” Hashtags include “#schoolcounselorsoftiktok,” “#dontbeanass,” “#equality,” “#blacklivesmatter,” and “#loveislove.”
According to the Newberg Graphic, numerous outlets have identified the pair as Mountain View Middle School guidance counselors Annie Bynum and Erin Dobias. The school district has not named the employees responsible for the video, however.
The Newberg School Board last year banned Black Lives Matter and Pride symbols in classrooms — a controversial decision that was later amended to forbid all political symbols in schools, the Graphic said.
Newberg Public Schools posted a March 14 Facebook message saying the previous week officials were made aware of the “highly offensive video made by two employees. As we stated last week, the employees were placed on administrative leave and the district immediately launched an investigation using a third-party investigator.” The message added that the outcome of the probe can’t be publicly disclosed.
“Language, gestures, and tone such as what was on display in the video are unprofessional and highly offensive,” the message added. “Regardless of personal views, our expectation is for our employees to maintain respectful and professional communication at all times while representing the district and our community. The use of school property, even if outside of school hours, should not be used for personal expression of the type seen in the video.”
