Over 600 parents in Zhejiang province were… surprised to get a text message from their children’s school calling their little emperors “a piece of shit”, the Wenzhou Metropolis Daily reports.
Xin Ou primary school sent out a mass text message to Wenzhou parents that said “this student is basically a stupid piece of shit, how was s/he ever born?”
The school blamed hackers, who it said had broken into the ‘Education Baby’ software that teachers used to text parents about students’ performance. Parents have been sent a letter of apology from the school, and police are investigating the causes of the text.
One Weibo user (who has probably worked as a teacher at some point) praised the school’s honesty: “I actually think this is what some teachers truly believe”.
Update #1: Shanghaiist’s Tom Bannister has pointed out that the text seems to read ‘傻逼’ (Shǎbī) or “Your child is a silly cunt!” Which is… worse?
