A viral video on social media shows a teacher threatening students with “Saturday school” if they didn’t stop complaining about a Pride video being played for them.
The clip begins with a Pride flag being shown on the screen, with students audibly booing. One student can even be heard asking: “Why are you showing this to kids?”
Other students are heard laughing and even making vomiting sounds.
The teacher can be heard telling the students to “stop” early in the clip, but she soon resorted to threats — telling the students that their comments were “inappropriate” and threatening to give them detention.
“Hey, I’m warning you guys now, if you’re gonna be inappropriate, I will have supervision down and give all of you a Saturday school for next year. So knock it off.”
The incident took place during a math class at Edison High School in Huntington Beach, California.

Meanwhile, reports have indicated that the teacher was not responsible for the Pride video being shown to her students — as the video was being played in every classroom that day.
According to conservative commentator Robby Starbuck — who posted the clip on Twitter — revealed in a subsequent tweet that “some 10th grade students came forward to tell me that this video was played in ALL classes that day, not just math class. They’re upset about it and want the school to refrain from playing videos like this.”

Another Twitter user provided more details about the incident, stating that the clip had come from the student news channel and confirming that it had been shown in all classes.
“In an effort to control the class, the teacher can be heard warning the students if they can’t behave they will receive Saturday school. This teacher is now dealing with her picture & name being posted all over the Internet — because she asked them to behave in class,” the user added in a follow-up tweet.
“Further context: the student news video was 10 mins long, it shared graduation information, interviews with students, sports recap, and videos reflecting on their school year. This video clip about Pride was a 1-min segment during the episode,” the user continued in another tweet.
Edison High School has a student news channel that publishes segments watched by ALL classes. During a recent segment there was a 1 min clip about Pride. The viral video was taken by a student in math class. You can hear kids booing, making gagging noises, & being disruptive.

In response to the incident, the left is once again defending gender ideology being showed to minors, with one user sharing what they claim is the full Pride video from the incident. The user argues that the video is fine for the classroom because the “message of this video is to love and accept everyone on campus.”
Here is the video that was shown at Edison High. It’s a simple explanation of #Pride month and does not show two women kissing, just their heads together.
The message of this video is to love and accept everyone on campus. That is all. #BoltTV @EdisonChargers pic.twitter.com/EcWN5YofM9
