After issuing a stern warning to bullies, the parent of a California middle school student has been banned from school for protecting her child.
Christian Tinsley will protect her daughter at all costs. CBS News reports Niguel Hills Middle School banned Tinsley after she confronted bullies who were reportedly harassing her child. In video footage captured Tuesday, the outraged mother told boys in her daughter's class to send their mothers, aunts or any female relative to her.
She made it clear she would be ready for a brawl.
“If you all bully my daughter, if you look at her the wrong way, if you breathe the wrong way, send your mom to me,” the woman said in the video reportedly recorded by a student.
“She’s a girl and y’all are boys,” she added. “If you bully my daughter, if you look at her the wrong way, if you breathe the wrong way, send your moms to me. Sisters, aunts, anybody over 18 — I’ll f**k them all up. You understand me?”
According to CBS Los Angeles, Tinsley's rant came after her daughter was bullied and harassed for months. Things came to a head Tuesday when her child started crying moments before being dropped off for school.
"She made a comment to me that if she wasn't as strong as she was, she would have killed herself," Tinsley said. "That's when Mama Bear mode went into effect."
Immediately, school administrators came to the classroom and escorted the woman out.
Tinsley said she took the proper avenues to report the bullying. After notifying school officials, the bullying escalated. In one instance, the girl was sexually harassed by one of the unnamed boys, The Washington Post reports. The boy responsible was suspended and the school launched an investigation. But the bullying never ceased.
“I think that sometimes when you’ve done everything you can do the way you’re supposed to do it, and it hasn’t been resolved, then sometimes as a parent…you have to decide if you’re going to go a step further and deal with any consequences,” she told CBS Los Angeles.
In the days following the tirade, Capistrano Unified School District issued a statement banning Tinsley from the school. CBS News reports the district is asking the Orange County to Sheriff's Department to launch an investigation.
