A Union Is Claiming They Were Hacked After Tweeting Out That A Elementary School Teacher "Looks Like A Penis"
DailyMail- A school board has been left outraged after a union representative tweeted that an elementary school teacher 'looked like a penis'.
The post from Douglas County Federation of Teachers' (DCFT) official Twitter account said: 'DAC meeting. [Teacher's name] looks like a penis. And that's not a compliment #douchebag'
DCFT has insisted its Twitter was hacked and has since deleted the tweet and its entire account.
'DCF Twitter was hacked. We couldn’t see the tweet that was sent because it was under media (not visible to us). As soon as the tweet was brought to our attention, we deactivated the account,' a spokesman for the union said.
Let me just clear this up for everybody involved, this clearly wasn't a hack job. Not only because no one cares enough to hack a school board's twitter, but also because the person that sent the tweet had to be in attendance. You don't tell someone they resemble a penis unless they resemble a penis, and you don't know if they truly resemble a penis unless you are looking at them while you make viral note of their penis-like characteristics.
I think we can all agree where this tweet really went South. That "douchebag" hashtag was just way over the line. Wrong on so many levels to conduct yourself that way towards school officials. On the other hand, it's not wrong to tell someone who -or what- they look like. I think that's what the person that composed this tweet meant by "that's not a compliment". It's not a compliment because it is actually more of a fact than anything else. The teacher's name and face have been excluded from the article so I have no choice but to believe that they would only provide evidence to my argument. If the guy didn't look like a cock why wouldn't they include his picture? Riddle me that shit. I'm not saying that whoever wrote this wasn't out of line. They undoubtedly were, just not for the reasons that are being pointed out in this article. Calling someone a douchebag is an insult just like calling someone a dick is an insult, but saying someone looks like a dick is simply an observation. Strike that allegation from the record. Intent inconclusive. It's purely speculation that the penis comment was meant as a criticism. I have reason to doubt that he is a douchebag, but I have it on good authority that he looks like the male reproductive organ.
P.S. No better insertion of the 'Weiner Defense' than to contend against accusations that you tweeted that a school teacher "looks like a penis". Doesn't get more elementary than that!
In a letter sent to the American Federation of Teachers (AFT), Ms Silverthorn said the DCFT was 'asserting the Weiner defense' - a reference to former New York congressman Anthony Weiner who denied sending pictures of his penis to women on Twitter, saying he was hacked.
'The DCFT has asserted the “Weiner defense” against their behavior, which is that they are the “victim” of a Twitter account hack,' Ms Silverthon wrote.
