By Miranda Nazzaro, The Hill | A Detroit-area teacher claimed she was fired from her job after the school received a complaint about her side hustle as a rapper, local media reported. Domonique Brown, a former U.S. history teacher at Taylor Preparatory High School in Taylor, Mich., told FOX 2 last week that a parent anonymously complained to the school in October about her rapping career on the side, leading to months of meetings and her eventual termination.

Performing under the stage name “Drippin Honey,” Brown’s YouTube channel, where she posted her singing videos, has nearly 3,500 subscribers.

She took to her platform following the alleged termination and posted a music video for “Drippin 101,” in which she can be seen dancing and singing with some of the students she previously taught. It has amassed nearly 69,000 views on YouTube and includes a description of the events that unfolded after the anonymous complaint.

“What troubles me most about this situation is the lack of consideration for the impact and influence I have had on my students’ lives. My outside life should not be grounds for termination when it does not interfere with my ability to fulfill my responsibilities as a teacher,” she wrote in the statement.

“My dedication, professionalism, and passion for education have always been unwavering, regardless of any personal pursuits I may have. It is worth noting that when I was hired as a teacher, my involvement in the music industry as a rapper did not hinder my candidacy.”

[In looking for a photo of Ms. Brown, I came across a Facebook page for Drippin Honey. The news there is not positive. Sort of gives the opposite story of Ms. Brown’s.]
