A Florida art teacher was removed from his high school after he offered to fight an American-born student who wouldn’t stand up for the Pledge of Allegiance.

Robert Reiber, 61, was filmed telling the Hispanic teenager at Manatee High School to go back to where he came from — in a clip that has racked up over a million views online.

The unidentified student sat awkwardly in his chair as the teacher scolded him for not being upright during the pledge and asked if he was from ‘Mexico or Guatemala.’

Reiber was removed from the school and barred from having any contact with students amid the ongoing investigation into his conduct.

He was recorded and said, ‘Are you going to sit there on your butt?’ while other laughing students held their laughter as the teacher raised her voice at the disobedient teenager.

As the teenager began to fumble in the silence, the teacher yells: ‘Don’t shake your leg.’

The art teacher was then recorded saying, ‘If you want to do something, get up and do it. I will defend my country to the end.’

But the student mumbles ‘I don’t want to hurt you.’

Reiber, who was named as the teacher involved by students familiar with the incident, according to Herald-Tribune, then stared: ‘Then go back to your … where are you from? Mexico or Guatemala?’

“I was born here,” said the student.

The smoking teacher reprimanded, ‘You were born here and you won’t stand for the flag?’ before the video is interrupted.

According to the Manatee County School District, the Pledge of Allegiance is recited at the beginning of each school day and all students must stand at attention.

When the pledge is recited, students should stand with their right hand over their heart.
