GRAND PRAIRIE -- Karon Wright, a middle school counselor in Grand Prairie ISD, has been "immediately relieved of all duties," the district said, after an offensive remark written from her Facebook account on WFAA-TV's Facebook page in regards to the explosion in West, Texas.

"It's amazing how the 'whites' get angry when Obama speaks," the comment read. "Oh well....its most of the whites who is getting blown away. So they will soon be wiped from the earth. Lol"

Wright denies she wrote the comment, and said her account was hacked.

The district said in a statement they found the statement to be "highly offensive, insensitive to the tragedy happening to our friends and neighbors in West, and disrespectful to the very human bond that we share with the people of West, especially those who have lost their loved ones."

The comment has since been deleted, but a viewer sent us a screengrab from their phone.

Well, obviously her account was hacked!  No other explanation for the atrocious grammar and sentence structure!  I mean, she works in a school, so it goes without saying that she speaks and writes impeccable English.

She needs to be concentrating on more worthwhile,  enriching activities..............

Is she really counselor material?
