The police believe others may have been involved because it appeared to be a social media challenge dubbed ‘slap a teacher.’
The rumored ‘slap a teacher’ dare is an insult to educators everywhere. And while this is not a trend on TikTok, if at any point it shows up, content will be removed. Learn more about practicing responsible behavior here: https://t.co/68VWesl9rf
