Two Virginia day care workers have been fired after photos of children in their care showed up on Instagram — along with comments making fun of them.

“He is thinking cuz sure can’t talk,” one day care manager from Heavenly Haven Learning Center 2 wrote, according to CNN affiliate WAVY.  The 2-year-old child the worker was referring to has delayed speech development, and is pictured sitting in a high chair, looking dejected.

Melissa Jordan says the photo shows her son, Ethan.  Speaking Tuesday to CNN’s “New Day,” she had a message for the day care workers: “If you think it’s funny that a child is delayed or if they’re not perfect or they have shortcomings, if that’s a joke to you or something that you think you should tease about, that’s not a job for you.”

“That’s how bullying starts. That’s how children become bullies” and insecure, she added.
