REPORT: High School Assistant Principal Resigns After Cursing at Pro-Life Student (VIDEO)
The assistant principal of a Pennsylvania high school resigned after a video of him verbally assaulting pro-life student activists surfaced and made its rounds.
Zach Ruff, the assistant principal who was filmed verbally assaulting and cursing at 16-year-old pro-life activists, resigned after a petition in DEFENSE of Ruff online acquired 50,000+ signatures.
Ruff was put on administrative leave on April 21 after the 18-minute video of him making a fool of himself went viral. Ruff shouted, “You can go to hell where they are, too,” while pointing at pictures of aborted children, “They’re not children, they’re cells!”
Assistant principal Zach Ruff, who was filmed berating and cursing at 16-year-old pro-life activists, resigned the day after a petition defending Ruff circulated online with more than 50,000 signatures.
“Listen here, son, alright? I am as gay as the day is long, and twice as sunny. I don’t give a f*ck what you think Jesus tells me about what I should and should not be doing,” Ruff barked.
“You’re acting very immaturely. I’m 16 and you’re yelling at me,” one of the teens responded.
The school said Ruff resigned from his position in a news release.
“Dr. Ruff has acknowledged that the demonstrators had a right to be on a public sidewalk,” the news release said. “He acknowledged that his conduct cannot be defended or condoned, and he deeply regretted his actions as displayed on the video. This school district will not interfere with the rights of anyone to express themselves.”
“In reviewing the video Dr. Ruff knew that the conduct he displayed was not representative of who he is and was not representative of the kind of educational leader he prided himself on being,” the news release added.
