Elementary School Teacher Sues School After Being Fired For Telling Class She Saw Tupac Shakur Alive And Rapping Under An Assumed Name

Tulsa, OK—MaryJean Thomas, a fifth-grade teacher at Shannon Miller Elementary School, was fired in September, and is now suing to get her job back. The school told her she was let go for poor performance, but she says she was let go because she said she saw dead rapper Tupac Shakur in concert over the summer, and the school thinks she’s “a whack job.”

“I excitedly told the children that Tupac was alive,” said Thomas. “I saw him at a concert in Norman, and was fortunate enough to meet him backstage and get the real story about why he faked his death.”

Thomas went on to explain that Shakur faked his own death in Las Vegas in 1996 over security concerns about enemies his parents made as Black Panthers, but was confident he had enough money to survive quietly for the rest of his live in obscurity. “But he invested his money with Bernie Madoff,” said Thomas. “So he gets ripped off, loses everything and has to start rapping again. But he knows he can’t use his real name, so Tupac Shakur changed his first name to Salt, and raps at small venues in the mid-west.”

The school would not answer questions directly, but released a statement saying that this wasn’t the first issue they’ve had with Thomas, whose employment was “terminated due to poor performance in a variety of crucial areas, including the credibility necessary to shape young minds in a positive manner.”

The school said they had recently been in contact with previous employers who provided other examples of “troubling behavior” she displayed at other schools she worked for when she lived in New England.

In 2007, her contract at a small private school in Nashua, NH, was not renewed after several students in her fourth-grade class said she would spend countless hours discussing the television show “LOST” and how Matthew Fox’s character was talking directly to her through the television and asking her to come join him on the island.

And in 2003, she claimed she was abducted by aliens while living in Karlsfield, VT, but has since changed her story. “I thought it was alien life forms that abducted me, but now I know that wasn’t the case. What I was really abducted by and held in their spaceship were dinosaurs. It was horrifying!”

Thomas is representing herself, handling her lawsuit pro se because “no other damn lawyer in the state will handle my case.”

Representatives for the estate of Tupac Shakur could not be reached for comment. Matthew Fox laughed at us and hung up the phone.

  1. I appreciate the fact Ms. Fiscialetti contributed to this excellent piece of work. The regular writers on this site seem to have lost sight of their original premise. They have begun to denigrate world-renowned scientists regarding dinosaur findings. Destroyed Planet?? really?? The obvious small town animosity shown to certain New England towns is approaching rudeness. Who wouldn’t try to get federal funding for a bullet train? Come on, matching funds is a piece of cake.
    Thank you, Ms. Fiscialetti for a well researched article.

    • Thank you for your comment. We can only report the news that we believe our readers will both learn and benefit from. If that means exposing the corruption that is gripping a small New England town, we feel we owe it to our readers to keep turning over those stones. As for the dinosaur piece, we are only reporting what has been a growing undercurrent in the dino and scientific community for sometime now. One day, the history books will show the real story behind “giant lizards” and future generations will be as amused by our archaic thoughts about these creatures as they will be with the fact that some people once thought Pluto was a “planet.”
      You are now informed. Go and do likewise.
