Head teacher suspended after showing Chuck Norris movie
A HEAD teacher has quit after allegedly screening a violent Chuck Norris kung-fu video during assembly.
Parents say Simon Norton, 49, played a clip to terrified kids as young as SEVEN.
The spoof film showed the martial arts actor spraying bullets and landing karate chops.
Mr Norton was suspended by education chiefs after angry parents complained that their children thought Norris was out to get them.
The head then resigned from St George’s Junior School in Shrewsbury, Shrops — after only six months in charge.
The film — called 5 Rules In Every Chuck Norris Movie — sees dozens of people killed with guns, rockets and his legendary roundhouse kicks. One disgusted parent said: “What did he think he was running — an army camp? He must be on another planet if he thinks it is acceptable. With all the violence going on in the world today, this is very worrying.”
Mr Norton is said to have played the three-minute YouTube clip — viewed 1.4 million times — to around 350 pupils aged between seven and ten three weeks ago.
A joint statement from Shropshire Council and the school’s governors confirmed that Mr Norton had resigned.
He refused to comment on the claims.
Norris, 72, made a career out of being a movie action hero and his filmography includes Way Of The Dragon.
Kids nowadays are raised to be such bitches. Harry Potter, Twilight, X-Factor and shit. I can't even look at a gaming forum these days, every kid has some weird shit with anime teddy's and garbage as an avatar.
I remember the second movie I ever witnessed (The first was Winnie The Pooh something or other.). It was the TV Premiere of The Terminator. My Dad, a Schwarzenegger fan, let me stay up late to watch it. I was about 4 years old. Thats the kinda shit I was raised on and I loved it. And you know what? Everyone else in my class was the same. All my friends knew the lines from RoboCop. I remember even Harrison Ford was deemed not violent enough among me and my friends.
