An engineer working for a Hasbro contractor has reportedly been pulled from the job by his employer after blowing the whistle on the toy maker’s critical race theory training.

The whistleblower, David Johnson, told Fox News Channel’s Sean Hannity he was suspended from working on the Hasbro account as of Monday while an investigation is conducted.

“Your access has been suspended for the moment while the company investigates some sort of issue of breach confidentiality,” Jason Pyle, president of IT contractor Harvey Nash, reportedly told Johnson.

Johnson, who is black, first spoke with Project Veritas earlier this month about the company training.

“[Hasbro is] attempting to covertly push CRT, Critical Race Theory, through branding and messaging through their products,” Johnson said. “I decided to come to Project Veritas because I oppose the indoctrination of children they wanted to push.”

An organization called The Conscious Kid, which describes itself as “an education, research, and policy organization dedicated to equity and promoting healthy racial identity development in youth,” provided the training for Hasbro workers.

Johnson said he came forward because he found the training insidious.

“I felt parents really needed to know what was happening,” Johnson said.

Katie Ishizuka-Stephens, a co-founder of The Conscious Kid, said in a video revealed by Johnson that little children display racist behavior.

“Children as young as 2 are already using race to reason about people’s behaviors, and we may see this play out in daycare or on the playground and how kids are starting to choose or exclude playmates and friends,” Ishizuka-Stephens said on the video.

“At the age of 5, children show many of the same racial attitudes held by adults. Children are really sensitive to the status of different racial groups in our society and show a high-status bias towards white people, which is the socially privileged group in our society. White children show pro-white bias at this age,” the video continued.

Johnson said he believes the premise of the training is “absurd.”

“Two-year-old racists is just an absurd concept,” Johnson said. “They explain that the white children, in particular, have the particular bias against black people. It’s a mainstream ideology now.”

The training was always optional for employees and never mandatory, Hasbro said in a statement responding to Johnson’s allegations.
