An educator in Rhode Island is facing backlash after proudly stating to his students that Elon Musk’s acquisition of Twitter was the most detrimental event possible, Your Content has learned.

Enrique Sanchez, a teacher from the state, openly criticized Musk’s takeover in multiple classroom settings.

It’s worth noting that Sanchez is currently pursuing a political career as a left-leaning candidate for RI State Representative.

The teacher’s remarks quickly garnered negative attention, with critics arguing that he should separate his personal political views from his professional responsibilities as an educator.

Concerns were raised about the impact of such statements on impressionable young minds.

On Monday, Twitter officially accepted a $44 billion takeover offer from Elon Musk, renowned for his involvement in companies like Tesla and SpaceX.
