WATERBORO, Maine (WCSH) — A junior at a high school in Maine said on Thursday she was kicked out of a Zoom class because a Trump flag was hanging behind her.
Mollie Woodbury said the flag had been up for around a week when was kicked out of her Zoom math class at Massabesic High School.
“It’s never really been an issue. Nothing has ever been said about it until the other day,” Woodbury said.
She said her teacher asked her to take the flag down, but Woodbury told her teacher she didn’t have to since it was in her bedroom and not offensive.
Woodbury then got a notification that told her she had been removed from the Zoom meeting by the host.
“I kind of feel like my right to have my own opinion was taken away by her,” Woodbury said.
Amanda Morrison, Woodbury’s mother, said she was shocked to hear her daughter was removed from the meeting.
