The woman wore a “Scream” mask to scare the little ones.
A Mississippi woman was fired for wearing a mask from the “Scream” horror film franchise to scare daycare children Where he worked.
On Wednesday, videos of the woman, identified only as “CeeCee,” wearing a halloween mask scaring little kids inches from their faces, were widely circulated on social media, leading to their dismissal from the Child Care and Learning Center Lil’ Blessings in Hamilton, Mississippi, along with three co-workers.
In the video, the children can be seen crying and hiding from the woman as she chases them, but in an apology video obtained by the Daily Mail apparently posted by CeeCee later, she says it wasn’t “meaningful.”
Here is the video of the employee scaring children with a Scream mask:
Though CeeCee acknowledges that she is the person behind the mask in every video, claims that his co-workers were aware of his plans to scare children who were being “bad”. A total of four employees were fired as a result of the stunt, according to a local newspaper.
CeeCee had been employed at the nursery for nearly four years before being laid off. At least one worker can be seen laughing in the videos.
“I did not go in there at my own discretion. I mean, I didn’t go in there with the intention of literally traumatizing those kids. I expected them to react the way they reacted when I did it,” she says in the apology.
“But what you all didn’t see was that after I left the room, I took it off and went back to the classroom… and I said ‘CeeCee caught the monster. He’s not coming back.’ And they hug me. I have known those children all my life,” she added.
Although the viral videos were met with outrage, some parents said they don’t blame the facility’s owner, Sheila Sanders, for the incidents.
“I know 100% that Mrs. Sheila, the owner and director, was not aware of this situation that was going on and as soon as she found out, all parties immediately ended,” said Kimberly Smith, mother of one of the terrified. to a local newspaper.
Sanders, who has owned the daycare for the past 20 years, said she didn’t find out about the incidents until Wednesday afternoon and that video was taken in September: “No one came to tell me it happened in September,” she told the newspaper.
“The people who did those acts are no longer with us. They were fired and I didn’t know they were doing that,” he added.
The Mississippi State Department of Health and the Monroe County Sheriff’s Office are investigating the matter.
