A Florida high school teacher resigned today after a YouTube video titled “Gay Threesome Sex” popped up in his school-issued laptop, which was hooked to a projector, during a class lecture, according to Tampa’s WTSP News.

Jose Rosario-Gonzalez, a ninth-grade social studies teacher at T. Dewitt Taylor Middle-High School in Pierson, Florida, was scrolling through his YouTube videos when he accidentally clicked on the adult title.

"Mr. Rosario was on YouTube, he scrolled through his videos and there was history videos except for one," a student wrote in a written statement. "This was one was titled 'Gay Threesome Sex.'  The whole class was saying 'eww' and 'What is that doing on there?' and he just kept scrolling and didn't say anything."

WTSP News reports that school officials said there were several files on Rosario-Gonzalez's computer classified as homosexual pornography.

For his part, the 53-year-old teacher who taught at the school for 12 years, decided to resign rather than face what he believed was an eminent termination. Rosario-Gonzalez, did not deny the incident and said he "did this on his own time, in the privacy of his home and it was never his intention to show students," according to school documents quoted by WTSP News.

Online LGBT news site Queerty writes that “it’s not clear if students saw any visuals from the clip or how an explicit video appeared on YouTube, which normally bans such content.”

Rosario-Gonzalez had been previously reprimanded for giving students the link to his personal blog—which had adult sexual content posted—in order to get class notes, according to WTSP.

The Daytona Beach News-Journal reports that, despite his resignation, Rosario-Gonzalez is still under investigation by the Department of Education.
