I wouldn't. As a Briton teaching English, I was dismayed by the reports of what he said. While I would like better use of English, anyone in English teaching (especially living abroad) who holds the notion that "British" or "American" is better needs to look at reality. It is international (although heavily loaded Stateside these days). That is the reality and that is what we should teach.
