Sacha Baron Cohen convinced bosses at Birmingham High School in Van Nuys to let their football team pose for a series of photos with his alter ego, Bruno, for the latest issue of GQ magazine in which he was featured on the cover, and it’s got School district employees a bit upset.
In the photos, Bruno was seen wearing only shoulder pads, red booty shorts, and an athletic supporter, while he posed behind, beside, and on top of the students.
A district official has admitted that it’ll be up to him and the others to decide the fate of the High School on the possibility of them becoming a charter school, and the photoshoot, which they did not find ammusing, could be a bump in the road. He told the LA Times; “This recent GQ thing has not helped matters. We’ve allowed our students to be used, and not in the most glamorous circumstances, either.”
This could be bad news for somebody’s job!! The school district should stop being such sticks in the mud though!
