Teachers Fired After Posting Snapchat of Baby Covered in Feces

Two daycare teachers have recently been fired after posting a Snapchat video mocking a child covered in feces. The six-month-old child had just returned to Little Jackets Nest daycare center in Alvin, Texas after being sick. 

In the video you can see the two teachers, barely out of high school, jokingly swinging the baby around with the Snapchat caption, "I dnt want kids anymore" and "y'all still got baby fever???".

The child's mother, Tori Rude, did not find the videos amusing.

"He's not a joke. He's not something you share on Facebook," she said. "I felt like they disrespected him and when I watch that, that's what overcame me. That my poor child is being treated like he's a circus act."

According to ABC7 Rude was adamant her child will never return to the daycare center. She has since reported the incident to state officials. 

Lisa Hues, the owner of Little Jackets Nest daycare, forwarded a message to all parents addressing the situation. 

"Recently an incident occurred at The Nest involving two employees who violated employee policies and acted inappropriately. These employees have since been terminated & the situation addressed. I am truly appalled by the actions of these staff members and in no way condone this behavior or have ever experienced anything like this in the 7.5 years we have been open. As you know, we have always had an exceptional reputation and have always provided quality care for our students and have a proven track record of excellence. Additional steps are being taken to re-train and review all employee policies with our teachers to ensure something of this nature never occurs again."

Licensing records report that Little Jackets Nest daycare has received 11 deficiencies since the opening in 2012. Most of these are for blocked fire exits, no annual fire inspection, and not submitting renewed employee background checks. 

"I just don't want it to happen to anybody else's kid. There was no excuse for that behavior and one day when they look back, I hope they understand how wrong it was," said Tori Rude.
