Hot mic: California school board member says ‘f— you’ to parent questioning mask mandate

The president of a California school district was caught berating the parent of a student after she raised concerns over mask and vaccine mandates.

The “hot mic” incident took place on Tuesday at the Los Alamitos Unified School District Board of Education, when one parent spoke passionately about the issues concerning enforcing a mask mandate among students.

“We are vocal because we are our children’s biggest advocates,” said Lauren Roupoli, the mother in question.

As the room erupted in applause, Board President Marlys Davidson uttered two words on the hot microphone:

“F*** you.”

Davidson issued an apology and said the public must be “heard with respect.”

“I reaffirm my commitment to serve our community with dignity and integrity, and I hope they will accept my sincere apology,” she said. 

Needless to say, not everyone was buying it, as evidenced by the comments posted under a clip of the video, which was posted to Twitter by Rachel Sandoval. 

“She needs to be removed  for that comment,” wrote James Stanley. “She showed how much she really cares about parent concern.”

“If a parent said this to a board member they would be removed by authorities,” added user “CB.”

Roupoli has called for Davidson to be dismissed.
