A teacher in Florida is being investigated by their school after reading a book about gay rabbits to first-graders of one of the elementary schools in Orlando. The parody book, which was created by the writers of HBO show Last Week Tonight with John Oliver last year, follows Vice President Mike Pence’s rabbit, Marlon Bundo, as he has a male rabbit crush. Parents complained after finding out their six- and seven-year-old kids had been read the book, which has not been approved by the Seminole County School District authorities. The school representatives confirmed that they have launched an investigation towards the teacher and the teacher was not suspended as long as it lasted, but parents boycott him and demand permanent suspension.
A Day in the Life of Marlon Bundo was created as a direct response to Marlon Bundo’s Day in the Life of the Vice President of the USA Mike Pence, written by the vice president’s daughter Charlotte Pence and illustrated by his wife Karen Pence. It has repeatedly been used to send a pro-LGBT message.
