Zoe Naylor was working as the coach of the girl’s modified softball team at Stephen and Harriet Myers Middle School when she sent a re-tweet on Twitter within the last few days that got the attention of parents.

A tweet was re-tweeted from Naylor’s twitter account, which had 464 followers, with an illustration of an African American with the caption below, “Lil (expletive deleted) looks like John Legend.” The expletive in question was the n-word.

Albany School District Spokesman Ron Lesko told News10, “We do not tolerate the use of that kind of language by any employee of our district”.

Naylor was originally suspended and then later fired by the school district in which she was working at the middle school as a substitute teacher. She has since deleted her Twitter account.
