Megyn Kelly released a letter earlier this week from a parent who pulled her daughter from the prestigious Manhattan Spence private school for showing a video from Ziwe, claiming that the video “openly derides, humiliates and ridicules white women.” She called the segment a “gratuitous display of racist hate speech directed at white women.” The school responded to the uproar by apologizing in a letter on Wednesday. “As you may know, yesterday a parent, who is also an alumna and a former trustee, sent a letter to the Board of Trustees to voice her strong objection to a video shown to 15 students in her daughter’s Grade 8 history class on the last day of school,” wrote the head of the school, Bodie Brizendine. “We take this seriously; it is never acceptable to ridicule anyone at any time. This video is not part of the Spence curriculum. Our teacher and the School acknowledge that sharing a satirical video that made fun of white women was a significant mistake. We are sorry for any harm this has caused to anyone in our community,” the email continued."
