A Wisconsin security guard is appealing his termination after he was fired for allegedly telling a student not to call him the n-word, using the slur himself – which is against school policy.

In a brief Facebook post made on Wednesday, Marlon Anderson shared that he was fired from the Madison Metropolitan School District.

He claimed that a student repeatedly called him a ‘b***h a*s n***a.’

‘I responded “do not call me n***a !” And I got fired,’ Anderson said in the post that has been shared more than 500 times and has more than 1000 shares.

He explained to the Wisconsin State Journal that he had been responding to a call to assist the assistant principal at West High School in escorting a disruptive student.

The student – identified as being black – reportedly shoved the administrator’s hand and started shouting obscenities at Anderson that included the n-word.
