Law enforcement officers removed a man from a Texas school board meeting after he read from a book critics call pornographic, available in the district’s libraries.
Mike Cee was removed from the Fort Worth Independent School District board meeting Tuesday after reading passages from the book, “Flamer,” during public comment, according to the Houston Chronicle.
School officials told Cee that if he read from the book, he would be cut off since the book was considered inappropriate during public comment.
Cee read a passage from the book where one character asks, “Who wants my hot wiener?”
As soon as the sentence was read, a school board official called for security. Despite community members’ protests, two security officers grabbed Cee and escorted him out of the building.
One attendant shouted “unconstitutional” as Cee was forcibly removed.
Upon hearing of what happened, critics on social media questioned why the book was available to minors if it was too graphic for adults.
“A taxpayer was forcibly removed by security from a Forth Worth ISD meeting tonight after he read from the pornographic book ‘Flamer’ which was available in the school library,” Libs of TikTok tweeted. “Too graphic for a meeting of adults but cool for minor students.”
The law will go into effect Sept. 1.
