In 2013, Idalia Hernández Ramos, a middle school teacher in Mexico, was a victim of cyber harassment. 
After discovering that one of her students tweeted that the teacher was a “bitch” and a “whore,” 
Hernández confronted the girl during a lesson on social media etiquette. Inquiring why the girl would 
post such hurtful messages that could harm the teacher’s reputation, the student meekly replied that. 
she was upset at the time. The teacher responded that she was very upset by the student’s actions. 
Demanding a public apology in front of the class, Hernández stated that she would not allow “young. 
brats” to call her those names. Hernández uploaded a video of this confrontation online, attracting. 
much attention.

student in the classroom and posting the video for the public to see, raising concerns over the privacy. 
and rights of the student.
