“I had to work from home for the past two weeks because the staff would have ‘clinical anxiety’ about working with me,” Kinnett added. “When I picked up books in my office, phone calls were made to each member of the team to get them out of the building.”

Kinnett added that he was banned from going to a school building or hosting professional development, while pledging to continue posting more information he had already uploaded from the district.

“It’s a good thing that I downloaded all the other racist documents and videos from the public server weeks ago,” Kinnett added in the Twitter thread.

Kinnett is gone viral earlier this month after posting a video describing how critical race theory is taught in Indianapolis schools and said administrators “lie” when they say otherwise.

Kinnett, an award-winning teacher, confirmed to Fox News Digital that he was put on paid leave due to his colleagues suffering from “clinical anxiety.” Additionally, Kinnett says he was blocked on his email account on Wednesday and his key card to enter school buildings was turned off.

“They apparently got tons of emails, texts and calls from people who refused to work with me, if they have to work with me, they’ll work,” Kinnett explained. “I have been banned from entering their buildings and they are terrified that I will pull out my phone and tape their lessons.”

Kinnett called the concerns “unfounded” because he never disclosed non-public information and added that he would file a FOIA request to confirm that the district has received complaints.

Kinnett said during his meetings with various HR managers and administrators, he was basically told that any negative rejection he received from the school was his fault and berated him for “ignoring” thereby.

When Kinnett had to visit a school building to pick up books, he says his boss informed everyone on his team that he would be on the scene in a move that he said made him feel like a ” leper ”or a“ security threat. “

Regarding his future in the district, Kinnett says he was not told he was no longer employed, but says he has been warned in recent weeks that he and the school should ” separate “if he continued to post publicly available information about Critical Race Theory online.

“No matter what my position and whether I am an employee or not, parents always deserve to know what’s going on in Indianapolis,” Kinnett said. “Whether they support it or disagree with it, they deserve to know it.”

The Indianapolis public school system did not immediately respond to a request for comment from Fox News Digital.
