A teacher from Hawaii admitted to recording himself having sex with a 13-year-old student and sharing the footage, along with hundreds of other images and videos depicting child pornography.
Alden Bunag first appeared in court on Thursday in Honolulu, and remains in custody.
Bunag admitted that he had been sharing child pornography with a teacher in Philadelphia, according to KHON. He and the other teacher, who was arrested in October, exchanged more than 3,300 messages, hundreds of which contained images and videos of child pornography.
Bunag also admitted to having sex with a 13-year-old student "at the school during lunch breaks," recording and sending the content to others. Court documents show he knew that the boy was under age at the time.
Speaking with KHON, former Hawaii Attorney General Doug Chin said it's "telling" that Bunag confessed to his crimes.
"That goes to show how a lot of times when people are involved in these kinds of crime, they do think they can get away with it," he said.
Bunag described himself on Twitter as a "socialist high school teacher fighting for a better society."
Following Bunag's arrest, Libs of Tiktok posted a screenshot of a post he wrote in April responding to someone calling those who want to teacher kids about sex groomers.
"You're f*cking acting like we want to show kids porn or something," he wrote, "but something I've learned through the years is that whenever right-wingers accuse others of something, it's DEFINITELY because they're projecting."
People were quick to point out the hypocrisy, and Libs of TikTok found more receipts.
