A Texas day care is under investigation after a video surfaced on social media of an employee pulling a student’s hair in front of other children.
The video in question was shared among Facebook users on Thursday showing the Little Playhouse Learning Center employee mistreating the child and according to KCBD, police reported that the video was recorded prior to its upload around 11:45 a.m. The child’s grandmother, Shanna Walker, stated that she saw the video 20 minutes before she picked up the child:
“I was furious. My initial reaction was to come and snatch her head off her body.But when you come to find out something like this is happening… I know that everyone thinks that their grandchildren are the best. But this little girl, she is the sweetest little girl that you could ever know. And she’s very quiet and very timid. So, for her to sit there and just to pull on her hair – it’s very infuriating. I mean I’m standing here right now, feeling like I’m about to boil over.”
