Drama teacher Michael Neri sent the perfect text message response to a parent who pulled her kids out of his class because he is gay.
Neri, a 26-year-old who founded the Home of Talking Props Theatre School in England, read the text message twice before informing the mother that he would not be returning her deposit, but would instead donate the money to an LGBT charity, according to Metro UK.
HERE IS THE MOTHER’S INITIAL TEXT MESSAGE TO MICHAEL NERI:
“Hi Michael. Following our chat this week I have decided that [name redacted] and [name redacted] will not be attending class on Monday. You have a strong reputation for performing arts which encouraged me to sign my children up for classes. I have recently learned of your lifestyle and as a Christian I cannot allow my children to be influence by unconventional idea. It is our belief that a man should marry a woman. I look forward to receiving my deposit which you may post to me via cheque.”
