#FreeCrunkBear: Carly "Crunk Bear" McKinney is free -- from her job, that is. Paging Diplo...
Carly McKinney, otherwise known as "Carly Crunk Bear" is "no longer employed" by the Cherry Creek school district, according to our Latest Word blog. The teacher, as you might remember, made headlines at the end of January for comments and photos on Twitter she's alleged to have made/posted. Diplo, as you also might remember, took up for the suspended teacher by launching a grassroots #freecrunkbear campaign on Twitter. The Latest Word has the full story. In the meantime, someone get Diplo.
