Adam Corolla, Teachers’ Union Trade Insults After He Calls Them Cowards

Adam Caroll and a Los Angeles teachers’ union clashed over the weekend after the comedian criticized their refusal to return to in-person classes.

The story: Carolla took aim at teachers in Los Angeles who pushed back against calls to go back to schools. The comedian said they either do not want to work or are “cowards.”

“Those are the only two options left,” he added.

The United Teachers of Los Angeles fired back at Carolla, accusing him of judging them from a place of privilege. The organization argued that he is less likely to contract the virus from the safety of his home or his affluent neighborhood and that the areas where they work are not as safe.

“Teachers ARE working … but congrats on being spared on the devastation our communities face. The communities we serve have COVID-19 levels 15 times greater than those in your wealthy La Cañada neighborhood,” the union, which represents around 35,000 teachers, wrote in a tweet.

The union added in another tweet: “Who is the coward, the teachers who dare confront government officials and powerful business to fight for the health of their students and families, or you who sit safely in your La Cañada mansion criticizing what apparently you don’t even understand: Teachers ARE working.”

The comedian doubled down. “That’s untrue. I called them cowards from my mansion Malibu,” Carolla responded.

He also wrote sarcastically: “Thanks for fighting for the health of the students. Keep up the good work.”

One teacher replied to Carolla’s comments by saying that she will throw away his books. “As a proud public school teacher, I proudly place your books in the trash. I regret spending any of my salary on supporting you.”

It is unclear if the teacher works in the Los Angeles area.

Carolla tweeted in response: “I am now going to throw out my textbooks.”

How we got here: Teachers in some places in the U.S. have rejected calls to return to schools, demanding better conditions. The Center for Disease and Control has previously said that schools do not contribute to the spread of the virus and earlier this month, issued an update reiterating: “Based on the data available, in-person learning in schools has not been associated with substantial community transmission.”
