A black security guard was fired from his job at Madison West High School in Madison, Wisconsin for using a racial slur when he asked a black student to stop calling him the N-word, according to WISC-TV.

Marlon Anderson, 48, who had been an employee of the school for 11 years, said he stepped in to help when the student pushed the assistant principal. He then said the student went on a profanity-laced tirade in which he called Anderson the N-word at least 15 times. Anderson only used the term himself when he finally asked the student to stop calling him the N-word.

He shared his own abbreviated account of the situation on his personal Facebook.
