Jared Hensley, the athletic director and assistant principal at Soddy-Daisy High near Chattanooga, was placed on administrative leave Wednesday afternoon, soon after he said girls “pretty much ruin everything’ in a video he had made for the student body.
In a Wednesday morning video address to students called “A Helping of Hensley,” he announces a ban on wearing athletic shorts. He acknowledges that boys will be unhappy about it, but he says he had made the rule.
“If you really want someone to blame, blame the girls, because they pretty much ruin everything,” he adds.
“Ask Adam, look at Eve – you can really go back to the beginning of time.”
In the video, which was posted to YouTube and then taken down, but then uploaded by the Chattanooga Times Free Press, Hensley continues: “It’ll be like that the rest of your life, keep your mouth shut, suck it up and follow the rules.”
His message prompted a sharp backlash on social media, with users calling his comments unacceptable and misogynistic and asking followers to contact Hamilton County Schools to express their displeasure.
