Kentucky Man Accused Of Racist Zoombombing Black Fifth-Grade

“You all are a bunch of dirty ni**ers,” prosecutors accused him of saying.

An accused racist Zoombomber is under federal investigation for allegedly entering a virtual classroom of a predominantly Black Louisiana school, and hurling racial epithets, NOLA.com reports.

The suspect, Brian Adams, a 45-year-old Kentucky man, barged into the virtual lesson of fifth-graders at Laureate Academy Charter School in Harvey on October 14, 2020, documents filed this month in New Orleans’ federal courthouse alleged.

“You all are a bunch of dirty ni**ers,” prosecutors accused him of saying, citing a recording of the incident.

He also said, “I am gonna hang you by the tree.”

The teachers kicked him out of the Zoom conference, but Adams found a way to rejoin the new class session and continued his racist verbal abuse of the young children.

Two students reported the next day that they found a video on YouTube that showed Adams’ Zoomboming. It circulated online under a page called “Archangel gaming.” He was allegedly using the handle “Alex Jones,” a likely reference to the InfoWars host who is also a far-right conspiracy theorist. Jones has been subpoenaed by the House committee that’s investigating the January 6 attack on the Capitol.

Adams allegedly admitted to hurling the racist insults at the kids under questioning by investigators. However, he was not immediately charged with a crime, according to the documents viewed by NOLA.com. He was under suspicion of violating several federal crimes, including interference with federally protected activities, threatening interstate communications, and wire fraud.
