Two daycare workers have been fired after a viral video showed the abuse of a child at the facility.


In the disturbing video filmed by one employee at My Little Playhouse Learning Center in Lubbock, Texas, another employee is seen yanking Amyra Wilson, 3, up by her hair and forcing her to stand while she eats.

“I was furious. My initial reaction was to come and snatch her head off her body."

The worker who recorded the incident can be heard laughing in the footage.

The video became a web sensation recently. However, according to the girl's mother, LaQuitta Wilson, the occurrence happened weeks prior.

"They had no apology," she said. "They had no reason they did not call me. Like I said, everything hit the fan and it's like they just had nothing to say."

Police are now investigating the incident.

In a statement, the officials of My Little Playhouse Learning Center explained that the two employees involved had been fired and authorities have been told.

"The owners and Directors of My Little Playhouse Learning Center LLC were made aware of video footage posted on social media at approximately 11:45 a.m. Staff involved were fired immediately. Local authorities (LPD) has been notified and are investigating accordingly. Texas Department of Childcare Licensing has also been notified."


In an interview with KCBD, Amyra's grandmother, Shanna Walker, said that before she showed up at the daycare to pick up the little girl, she already saw the video.

“I was furious. My initial reaction was to come and snatch her head off her body,” she said. “It’s very frightening."

Walker added that the workers there are “supposed to be people that are taking care of [the children] that has their well being at heart."


Meanwhile, Amyra's parents are ready to pursue legal action.

Amyra's father, Martreal Walker, said: "We want any legal action that can happen, any legal action that happened to her, like jail time."

Since 2016, the daycare center had 19 violations, according to the website of the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services.
