Sixth Grade Teacher Shows Class Saw, Is The Worst

I might have mentioned this before, but it’s relevant here, so SUE ME! Sue me about it. When I was in fourth or fifth grade, a Catholic nun showed our music class Titanic because she didn’t know there were boobs in it. As soon as the boobs showed up on screen she rushed to the front of the classroom and attempted to turn off the movie, but by the time she got to the screen it was already too late. She had just shown a class full of 11-year-olds the nude figure of Kate Winslet, they all knew she made a mistake, and they were all laughing. THIS STORY IS SO MUCH MORE UNSETTLING THAN THAT STORY, NOT THAT THAT STORY IS UNSETTLING AT ALL, IT’S HILARIOUS, BUT AHHHHHH THIS STORY! From Gawker:

According to French radio network Europe 1, a math teacher from Colombes has been suspended after he allegedly screened the infamous “torture porn” film Saw to a classroom full of 11-year-olds.

“This will be your first horror film,” Jean-Baptiste Clément reportedly told his students.

The father of one of the traumatized pupils says he brought the incident to the attention of the school after his boy came home visibly distraught and he asked him what was up.

At a disciplinary meeting today, the teacher was handed a one-day suspension to allow the school to conduct a thorough investigation.

A rep for the district said the teacher might receive more severe punishment once the investigation is complete.

NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO. “This will be your first horror film.” God. What a nightmare.
