A principal was put on leave for saying Kobe Bryant's death was a 'karma'

A high school principal that was criticized for an online post following Kobe Bryant's death has been placed on administrative leave. Liza Sejkora remarks that Kobe Bryant deserved to die was deleted on Facebook following the outrage - Bryant, his daughter Gianna and seven others died in a helicopter crash that went down in Calabasas, California.

“Not gonna lie. Seems to me that karma caught up with a rapist today,” Sejkora wrote.

The principal later deleted the post and wrote another message saying, "You are free to judge me for the post just as I am to judge the person the post was about."

On Monday, the principal has issued apology in an email to parents, saying her response was "personal, visceral reaction" that was "inappropriate and tasteless," quoted in The Columbian newspaper.

The school district announced that Sejkora has been receiving threats over the post. In line with the threats, officials announced that they'd placed the principal on leave.

“Our priority is always the safety of our students and staff,” Superintendent Jeff Snell wrote to parents.

“In light of threats to (Sejkora) and concern from our community, (Sejkora) has been placed on administrative leave today pending the outcome of our investigation.”

Bryant, 41, was arrested and accused of rape in 2003, but he denied the allegations and later the prosecutors dropped the charges after the accuser decided she would not testify.
