'Bridesmaids' Slap Case

NAACP Demanding School

Remove Teacher

The NAACP is demanding the removal of a Malibu teacher who allegedly used the movie "Bridesmaids" as inspiration to repeatedly slap a black student in class ... TMZ has learned.

TMZ broke the story ... Dionne Evans (above) -- a 9th grader at Malibu High School -- filed a police report last week, claiming the teacher slapped her in the face 6 times because Dionne forgot to bring her notebook to class.

According to the police report, the teacher made Evans stand in front of the room ... then asked, "Did you see 'Bridesmaids'?" before slapping her multiple times ... a reference to a scene in the movie where one character literally tries to slap some sense into another.

Now, the President of the Santa Monica branch of the NAACP tells us, the organization is looking into the incident -- and will attend a school district meeting tonight, insisting that the teacher be placed on administrative leave while the matter is investigated.

We're told Dionne's family and their lawyer Donald Karpel met with the NAACP on Tuesday for several hours to discuss legal options.

As we reported, the L.A. County Sheriff's Department is also investigating. Still no word from the school or the teacher.

On the bright side, at least she re -enacted a scene from Bridesmaids, not Roots.

The race issue isn't what concerns me. If this teacher slaps ANY child, she should be removed from the classroom.

Why is anyone surprised by this behavior? The QUALITY of teachers coming out of the universities is NO BETTER than the kids they are teaching. American culture is creating these monsters and they are subsequently infiltrating our school systems. These teachers are the same kids who are falsely allowed to graduate without having learned anything including how not to be a thug and go to jail. It has to change from school age on or we will continue to get this quality of teachers in a thug, coarse and vulgar culture.

Why purpose does this family have in contacting the NAACP? Not everyone is racist, some people are just Plain Stupid. Take it up with the school board, not a bunch of angry black people. Those people [the NAACP] have a habit or rallying the community up and for what purpose exactly is both frightening, and confusing to me.

This is ridiculous. Ms. Gonzalez truly IS the most loved teacher in all of Malibu High, as well as the most loved coach! Ms. Gonzalez was my AP English teacher and track and field and cross country coach for many years. She is one of those (few) amazing teachers who really cares about her students and invests everything in them. Everyone who knows her knows her infectious energy and great sense of humor. Shame on you, for threatening to sue a teacher that you know is amazing. Next time don't fall asleep in class and fail to bring your homework.

I am going to assume the teacher is white, because the NAACP would not get involved if big evil whitey wasn't being big evil whitey.
--
How hard did the teacher slap her? You can lightly pat someone on the cheech and it will be called a bitch slap.
--
How many times has Dionne forgot to bring her materials to class? What is the real number and not the "good and saintly little black girl whose **** does not stink" number?
--
Unless the teacher hurt and injured the student, this shouldn't even be in the news. Students are able to hurt and injure teachers, teachers should be allowed to switch it around.

Dating myself here but when I was in school if you misbehaved badly you got sent to the Vice Principal's office for a swat (or more) with a ruler. Nowadays that would be called child abuse but my generation turned out OK.

Why the hell does everything have to point back to Obama? I've yet to have seen nor heard of any president getting bashed this much.. Obama, I'm sure is doing his best, with what was handed to him by all of the "awesome" presidents before him. Caucasians never complain when top billing is given to "their"missing children, or anything that pertains to them getting repercussions. No teacher or adult Eric's should put their hands on a child. That is what this is about..! So all the racists on this site, chill out and stop hating!

Good point THIRDFROMTHELEFT, but don't waste your time.You should be able to tell by a majority of the comments on here that most of these folks are HATEFUL AND IGNORANT.Because this young lady is BLACK, she is a HO, NAPPY HEADED, a B-TCH and every other derogatory name. Like someone else said, the HYPOCRISY is mind blowing. they(WHITES) say we(BLACKS are always playing the race card and then when something like this or with trayvon martin or the countless other tragedies that have happened to blacks, they (WHITES) come out swinging with the name calling.Its just really SAD and PATHETIC. If this girl had been white, then the whole FREAKING world would have had to stop. If someone were to say that ALL whites were a bunch of STRINGY HEAD, BANJO PLAYING,COUSIN MARRYING, NON-BATHING HILLBILLIES then world war 3 would be started, but OH NO there's no RACISM here.

That's why whenever I get a chance, I slap white men and women in my line of work. All these punks, bi**ches and faqs (you know what I mean) hiding behind these comments, only get tough when they are picking on someone weaker or when they are in groups with pasty maggot faces covered. You NEVER see a hunky bit*CH OR white ****tt go one on one with anyone black NEVER! They have to be in a group picking on someone else or humiliated a CHILD in a classroom setting! That's why anyone with any type of decency can see who the devils of this world are and truly hate them, just read the comments from this wicked, hate filled race. They will vanish soon, even though their the ones who've tried to kill off every indigenous people I can think of. Satan's wicked white faces will not win, it's prophesied and they prove the prophesy true that they are demonic, just read the comments of these maggots.
