“First it was a shock. No way could that have been a beer, maybe a root beer. Then we look back on the live and yup, that’s a Pacifico!” said school psychologist Gregg Platto (NBC4).

Akers has been criticized by colleagues and school parents alike. Some have even called for his resignation.

Many Americans have found themselves letting loose a little too much during quarantine. Sales for off-site alcoholic beverages are reportedly up 24%.
