A counselor at Andrew Jackson Middle School in Grand Prairie was fired after she made an offensive comment on a WFAA-TV Facebook update about the explosion in West, TX.

Grand Prairie ISD said Karon Wright has been "immediately relieved of all duties" after making the following comment:

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

The comment has since been deleted.

In a statement, the school district wrote that they found Wright's comment "highly offensive, insensitive to the tragedy...and disrespectful to the very human bond that we share with the people of West..."

Wright denies that she wrote the comment, saying her account was hacked.
