A Teacher Thought It Was a Good Idea to Show The Human Centipede 2 in Class, But It Really Wasn’t

A Tennessee teacher decided to show their class Tom Six's revolting piece of torture porn excrement The Human Centipede 2 for reasons that remain ambiguous. (It is in black and white, which makes it an inherently artsy film.) The film series, orchestrated by "director" Tom Six, concerns a crazy doctor and his eventual acolytes abducting people and sewing them together, butt-to-mouth, creating the titular monster. The third movie involves a crazy warden who watches the movies on DVD and tries to emulate them with his prisoners. It's meta because the same actor who plays the doctor also plays the warden, get it? (Here's an oral history of the series, though perhaps anal history is more accurate.) The Jackson Sun obtained a copy of a letter sent by parents to the school's principal:

Superintendent Verna Ruffin confirmed to The Jackson Sun that students had viewed “Human Centipede 2 (Full Sequence)” after a parent called the paper to report the incident.

Ruffin would not say why the students had seen the movie, or whether the teacher in that classroom had been suspended or otherwise disciplined.

“The matter has been addressed,” Ruffin said. “It’s inappropriate and unacceptable.”

Six responded that the movie should be required viewing in all schools, admittedly a minority opinion. He also literally compared his own Twitter to stinking itch recently, so.
