A high school teacher has been fired after a scurrilous hacker unearthed a video of him and another man having sex — and posted the footage to the school’s website.

According to The Washington Blade, Brian Cody Bray is fighting to get his job back after school officials denied him severance and suggested he was partially responsible for the insidious prank.

The Advocate reports Bray was at home sick when a co-worker called and told him about the video — which was posted on the faculty page.

He told The Blade, “Pretty much immediately after that phone call I went to the bathroom and threw up. I was just in shock that oh my God, this is something that will impact my career, impact my life and what am I going to do?”

The Blade reports Bray explained the hack to school administrators, telling them someone had accessed his email account and stolen his passwords to other sites, including Dropbox, where the video was stored.

The hacker changed the name of the file from “Private” to “FagTeachBray.”

Apparently, anonymous texts were sent to a student whose number was in Bray’s computer, telling the student where the video was posted.

Bray posted screenshots of the text messages on a webpage he built to explain the crime.

He acknowledges that school officials really had no choice but to fire him:

“Of course I had to be dismissed at the time because I had lost any kind of authority with my students there.”

At this point, he admits he’s not emotionally ready to return to a classroom, anyway.

He’s filed a police report, but doesn’t think authorities are investigating. Arkansas has no hate crimes law.

While unemployed, Bray has set up a website documenting the cybercrime.
