Students watch ’50 Shades’ as reward, teacher claims to not know what film is about
ROMNEY, W.Va. (May 16, 2015) — Part of the erotic movie “Fifty Shades of Grey” was shown in a West Virginia high school classroom this week after students convinced their teacher to let them watch it as a reward for good work.
The Charleston Daily Mail reports that the teacher apparently didn’t know what the film was about.
Hampshire High principal Jeff Woofter says the film was shut down after 10 minutes when an assistant principal walked by and saw what they were watching.
Hampshire County school policy prohibits students from watching movies of any kind in the classroom.
It is unclear if the students or teacher will face disciplinary action.
The first “50 Shades” film opened this year on Valentine’s Day weekend and became one of the biggest R-rated openings ever.
