Beijing: More than 600 parents in China were left furious after receiving a text message from their children`s school calling their wards "a piece of s**t", a media report said.
The parents in Wenzhou city received a text message from Xin Ou primary school that said: "This student is basically a stupid piece of s**t, how was he (she) ever born?"
Angry parents asked school officials for an explanation, the South China Morning Post reported. A school spokesperson said the message was the result of a software glitch.
The school had been using a software platform named "Education Baby" that allowed teachers to text parents about students` performances.
The system collapsed Tuesday. Someone could have hacked into the system to send the malicious message, said the spokesperson.
