A high school teacher has bagged suspension after telling his class that George Floyd was a criminal.

Howard Zlotkin is under fire after going on a rant against his Jersey City high school students over Zoom on Wednesday

A high school teacher in New Jersey was removed from the classroom with pay and is being investigated after he went on a vulgar rant aimed at his own students.

Dickinson High School students were subjected to the hateful tirade during a remote lesson conducted over Zoom.  

The conversation on Wednesday was initially about climate change before landscape and design teacher Howard Zlotkin took it in a different direction.

'If you think I'm privileged then f*** you, because my daughter thinks I'm privileged and I don't speak to her,' Zlotkin said to the class, which was recorded. 

At one point, he allegedly says 'f*** you' to a student while pointing his middle finger at them. 

Zlotkin then delved into racial territory, commenting on George Floyd and decrying the Black Lives Matter movement.

'I hear people whining and crying about Black Lives Matter, but George Floyd was a f*****g criminal and he got arrested and he got killed because he wouldn't comply and the bottom line is we make him a f*****g hero,' Zlotkin says.

Senior Timmia Williams, 17, also told NBC New York that Zlotkin demanded essays from four of the black female students in the class, though it's not clear what those essays would've been about.

Williams and her mother contacted officials at the school and board of education to discuss the incident, but didn't initially hear back.

Zlotkin was back teaching on Thursday, when he allegedly took aim at Williams for refusing to write the essay he demanded.

'I don't think you can make a case,' Zlotkin said. 'You know what Timmia? You're full of s**t, too.'

Williams cried to her mother about the vulgar incident.

'She was crying,' Williams' mother, Margie Nieves, told NBC New York. 'She came to me, tells me, 'Mom why is it there's a problem with my skin?''

At that point, the Jersey City Public Schools district finally stepped in and removed Zlotkin from his teaching role, putting him on paid suspension.

'The school was in the process of taking statements from students today before proceeding with disciplinary actions, and then the second video surfaced,' the district said in a statement.
