Ahh, the poor girl!
Recently, a video went viral on social media that showed a student breaking down in a car after her teacher allegedly fat-shamed her in class.
The incident that went viral on social media sparked outrage among netizens.
In the video, the student can be seen crying uncontrollably while her mother comforts her. According to the student, her teacher had made derogatory comments about her weight in front of the entire class.
The video has since garnered over 1.1 million views on Twitter at the time of writing.
The incident has raised concerns about the need for better education and awareness about body positivity and inclusivity in schools. Schools should create a safe and supportive environment for all students, regardless of their size, shape, or appearance.
Teachers should be trained to promote body positivity and respect for diversity and should never use their position to shame or bully their students.
The video has also highlighted the power of social media to bring attention to important issues and hold people accountable for their actions. The video received widespread attention on social media, with many people expressing their support for the student and calling for action to be taken against the teacher.
In response to the incident, the Ministry of Education released a statement condemning the teacher's actions and reminding teachers to adhere to professional conduct and ethics.
The Ministry also stated that they would investigate the incident and take appropriate action.
The fat-shaming incident is a reminder of the importance of creating a safe and inclusive environment for all students.
Fat-shaming is a form of bullying that can have serious consequences on a person's mental health and self-esteem. It can lead to feelings of worthlessness, depression, anxiety, and even eating disorders.
No one should be made to feel ashamed of their body or be subjected to hurtful comments, especially by someone who is supposed to be an authority figure and a role model.
Most Malaysians also seem to agree that body shaming has no place in our schools, and teachers must be held accountable for their actions.
It is essential to promote body positivity and respect for diversity in schools to ensure that every student feels valued and supported.
