Idaho music teacher is fired after sharing Facebook post saying Boise 'white supremacist hater a**' mayor should 'get laid by BLM members'

An Idaho music teacher has lost her job after saying Boise's 'white supremacist hater a**' mayor should 'get laid by BLM members' in a Facebook post. 
Rita Soltesz worked her last day at the Idaho Fine Arts Academy and Eagle Middle School Friday after commenting on a news story about Lauren McLean on July 18. 
Replying to an article about McLean's criticism of white supremacists who attended a Black Lives Matter protest, Soltesz wrote: 'Her white supremacist hater a** needs to get laid! by BLM members. Should be group activity and make it go viral! I'm still deciding if they should wear masks during the activity.'
Her Facebook post was seen by district officials and parents and school officials confirmed the district would be taking 'immediate action'.

It is not known if Soltesz was fired or if she resigned. A decision was made July 24.
Her bio and details had already been removed the district website last week.  
West Ada School District spokesman Eric Exline said: 'We have received a number of emails from concerned parents and we share their concerns. The statements in the post don't reflect the values of the West Ada School District.' 

The article Soltesz engaged with was referencing a move to remove McLean from her position as mayor.
IFAA Secretary Cynthia Anderson told KTVB: 'My heart dropped when I saw this. This is not what we represent and will not stand for it.'
IFAA Principal Christian Housel added: 'The Facebook post by one of IFAA’s staff does not reflect the values of our school or the West Ada School District.'
