A Texas high school student hit her teacher while making racial comments in a now-viral video.
The video, which was posted to Twitter on Friday, shows an unidentified white female student at Castleberry High School in Fort Worth striking her black teacher.

“Deal with me,” the student said after hitting her teacher, who was talking on the phone.
“Oh no, no, no, no, no,” the teacher said calmly, walking around her desk. “You touched me. I did not touch you.”
The teacher then exits the room into the hallway before the student uses the desk phone to call her "momma," continuing, “You ain’t about to f*** me up, bitch!”
“I need you to get over here now because this teacher is about to get f***** up if she doesn’t get the f*** away from me,” the student told her mother on the phone. “You want to talk to her because she’s black, and she’s f****** pissing me off right now.”
The angered student then throws the phone at the teacher before the video ends.
The school district released a statement Monday expressing support for the way the teacher handled the tense situation.
“We first want to commend the teacher for the calm demeanor and utter professionalism she demonstrated throughout the entirety of the incident, even when the situation turned violent and offensive,” school officials said in the statement. “We support this teacher and her response in the strongest terms possible.”
