OCONEE COUNTY, S.C. -

Walhalla High School Assistant Principal, Charlie Fowler, has resigned after being accused of a controversial post to Facebook.

Fowler was placed on administrative leave after allegedly posting a picture of a kindergartener with the caption, “Honey Boo Boo at Walmart.”

Superintendent Dr. R Michael Lucas says Fowler turned in his resignation Tuesday.

The district released the following statement:

"The School District of Oconee County, both in policy and practice, prohibits harassment, intimidation, or bullying of any kind. Regrettably, a District employee made an inappropriate posting through social media that included a photograph of one of the District’s students. The District does not condone this conduct and the individual who made the inappropriate posting has resigned. Any allegations of harassment, intimidation, or bullying are investigated fully by the District administration and addressed as appropriate. The District sincerely regrets the incident occurred."
