The post, which removed a short time later, was in reference to a 2003 case in which Bryant faced rape charges involving a 19-year-old woman.
Others, including a Camas High School Senior are, however, not buying her apology.
The 41-year-old basketball legend and his 13-year-old daughter Gianna were among the nine people who perished when Bryant's private helicopter crashed in Calabasas on January 26, and it has now been confirmed he will be honored within the In Memoriam section of the Oscars this weekend. "On the basketball courtroom, you're not my good friend, and I'm not your good friend, and it's both kill or be killed".
Sejkora reportedly deleted the post after an hour, telling KGW8 it was a "visceral reaction" to reports of Bryant's death posted quickly before receiving "additional information".
The school district said that Sejkora, who has led the high school since 2017, had been receiving threats over the post.
Sejkora wrote later January 26 that she deleted her controversial post "because the comments missed my intent". The woman later filed a civil suit against Bryant that was settled out of court. In light of threats to Dr. Sejkora and concern from our community, Dr. Sejkora has been placed on administrative leave today pending the outcome of our investigation. Today, I apologized to my staff, and now I apologize to you. It was inappropriate and tasteless.
"In education, we remind students to think before they post online, especially when feelings are inflamed", Sejkora said. "We communicated with our community last night, my teachers yesterday, and then the students today". We will continue to have additional staff at Camas High School for support.
But Snell, the superintendent, told KATU-TV that he will continue supporting Sejkora as she rebuilds trust with her students, the community at large.
Speaking to KATU about the Facebook post, Sejkora said: "I have some personal experience that generated the visceral reaction". The student, who believes public figures should set exemplary standards, wants Sejkora to resign. I just don't believe that things didn't happen with force."Asked if it's fair to talk about the allegation after his death, Leslie said she thinks the media "should be more respectful at this time."It's like if you had questions about it, you had many years to ask him that", she said".
"Needless to say ... there will be plenty of room so if you'd like to be a part of this, we'd love to have you!"
