Ohio School Bus Driver Jackie Miller Rants at Students is a viral video of a former Amherst, Ohio bus driver, Jackie Miller, going on an expletive-filled rant at the students on her bus after one student purportedly sprayed perfume that triggered her asthma while on the bus. The video was posted to TikTok in late March 2023 and went viral across social media, inspiring mixed reactions, many in support of Miller. In the following days, Miller resigned from her position but refused to "take back" her rant, using it to spread awareness for the lack of respect students give bus drivers. Over $110,000 USD were raised for Miller's retirement fund through GoFundMe.

On March 31st, 2023, News 5 Cleveland reported on the video, reporting that Miller resigned after it went viral. The story features an interview with Miller, who says the perfume being sprayed was her "breaking point" and that the behavior shown is uncharacteristic of her. Miller reportedly worked as a school bus driver for 15 years. She claims that the outburst was the "culmination of years worth of frustration stemming from a small group of junior high students" and reportedly asked for help from the administration, but never got any. In the report, she is quoted as saying:
"I truly regret the whole incident because it should not have happened. I should’ve been a little more calm and been able to talk to him [the student] better than what I did. I do apologize for that but I don’t take it back, this was my breaking point."
The report also links to a page by local Ohio apparel store Mistakes on the Lake where they are selling a shirt that reads, "My foot's going to be so far up your goddamn ass it's going to dangle out your goddamn nose" (shown below).
