Tennessee teacher suspended after showing “Human Centipede 2” to students

Posted on Tuesday, May 10th, 2016    

A high school teacher in Jackson, Tennessee was recently suspended without pay after her students watched portions of the horror movie “The Human Centipede 2: (Full Sequence)” under her supervision. 

The teacher, Michelle Blankenship of Jackson Central-Merry High School, is being investigated after she let 9th and 10th grade students watch the gruesome film on April 22. Superintendent Verna Ruffin stated that the district wants to discover why and how Blankenship showed the movie to her students.  Ruffin also wants to find out if Blankenship played the movie herself or if a student played it in class. Premiered in 2011, “Human Centipede 2” is the sequel to a movie about a mad doctor who surgically attaches a person’s mouth to another’s anus in an attempt to form a human centipede.
