Teacher schools homophobic Internet troll in the best possible way

A Twitter troll received an important lesson in tolerance (and basic grammar) when he posed a hypothetical question to his 1,268 followers about whether they would be okay with their child being taught by a gay teacher.

Last week, aspiring hip hop artist (and Bill Cosby supporter) @Naj_Mullah tweeted:

As a straight man, how do u [sic] feel about your child having a homosexual teacher!? Who their [sic] around for 8 hours of the day!

Fortunately, Twitter user @haitreason — himself a “homosexual teacher” from Texas — noticed the tweet and crafted the perfect response:

If a gay teacher teaches my child the difference between they’re, their, and there, I’m good.

Before the original tweet was deleted, the response was retweeted and liked over 33,000 times.

Unfortunately, Naj_Mullah doesn’t seem to have learned his lesson.

After being schooled by the school teacher, he went on the defensive, spewing off a number of unapologetically nasty tweets
