When the U.K.-based drama teacher got a homophobic text from one of his students' parents, he was shocked. The parent had texted the founder of the Talking Props Theatre School that their children would no longer attend his class because of his "lifestyle."

"Hi Michael. Following our chat this week I have decided that [redacted] and [redacted] will not be attending class on Monday. You have a strong reputation for performing arts which encouraged me to sign my children up for classes," she wrote. "I have recently learned of your lifestyle and as a Christian I can not allow my children to be influenced by unconventional ideas."

She then explains that she believes marriage should be between a man and a woman, and requested a refund.

Though obviously insulted, Neri, 26, didn't back down.

He texted back a response that was classy yet poignant, which he shared on Twitter.
