“As many of you know, a disturbing video showing a former employee displaying inappropriate behavior with two children has gone viral on social media. We take seriously the safety of your children. Therefore, upon being informed of the video, we immediately took action. The employee was fired . All hiring requirements were followed which included a criminal background check and a child abuse check. Both checks came back clear.”
Regardless, social media users discovered the suspect’s address, so she may need to re-locate to protect her safety. This incident sent social media in a rage.
