Way to Be Stupid #AnthonyAguirreJuniorHigh: Gives the "Most Likely to Become a Terrorist" Award to a 13 Year Old

This is not funny in any context at all.
Seventh-grader Lizeth Villanueva has been in her school’s academic honors program for two years. She gets good grades and has never been a discipline problem. Yet on Tuesday, her teacher gave her a “most likely to become a terrorist” award.
It was supposed to be a joke, part of a mock end-of-the-year awards ceremony at Anthony Aguirre Junior High in Channelview, Tex., near Houston, where a group of teachers hand certificates to students. Lizeth, 13, said her teacher “just laughed” when she signed and handed her the certificate, just one day after the Manchester arena terrorist attack in Britain.
These teachers were supposed to be teaching an honors program? This wouldn't be funny even on Colbert if they gave this so-called "award" to Sean Spicer or someone. Hell, there would probably be huge backlash. And they added insult to injury by doing it one day after 22 people were killed by a terrorist. I would have tore it up in front of the laughing teacher and thrown it in her face.
