Kentucky lap-dance principal in more hot water after Madonna’s ‘Like A Virgin’ video surfaces

More shocking video of “Man Pageant” activities from Hazard High School in Kentucky has surfaced, this time featuring the principal up front and center while a male student in drag performed Madonna’s “Like A Virgin” and crawled all over him.

This video follows pictures posted on the high school’s Facebook account that showed male students in lingerie giving the principal and teachers lap dances. Cheerleaders were also seen in Hooters waitress outfits with what appeared to be alcohol. Paddlings were administered at the event as well. Those pictures have since been taken down.

The latest video was posted by journalist Nate Bryan who had tweeted about the 2020 clip showing a high school boy who was seen touching the school principal “in a definite forbidden student/teacher way.”

The video featured Hazard High School principal and Mayor Donald “Happy” Mobelini taking part in the homecoming event last year where a male student in a wig and a long white dress was cheered on as he writhed on the floor to the “Madonna” song and then got up close and personal with the principal. The student also aggressively touched two other individuals in the audience before rolling around on the gymnasium floor and then posing.

“Hazard High School. 2020 Homecoming Like a Virgin And Mayor/Principal Happy is front row. But please, feel free to tell me I’m taking this outta context,” Bryan tweeted.

Prior to that, Bryan had asked, “So about this ‘nothing like this has happened at Hazard before’ What if I told you a 2020 video (Skit Day from Hazard Homecoming Week) will surface showing a boy in drag dancing to “Like a Virgin” and touching Principal/Mayor Happy in a definite forbidden student/teacher way?”

Following outrage over the latest photos that were posted, School Superintendent Sondra Combs claimed in a statement that the event was “not the type of event that typically occurs here at Hazard High School” and “there has never been any issue raised prior to this year.”

“At the end of the day, the light-hearted activity simply got out of hand, and for that, we apologize. In the future, we will strive to keep the lighthearted, fun nature of school activities without the inappropriate behavior,” Combs remarked.

She stated that disciplinary action had been initiated against those who took part in the event but did not give any details on who was being reprimanded or how.

The “Like A Virgin” video and others over the last four years seem to contradict her assertions.

Another video, according to the Louisville Courier-Journal, that was first posted on Instagram in October 2017 and then shared again in January 2018, shows a male student who was dressed in a bra, shorts, and wig, grinding on two other male students who sat in chairs in the middle of the gym, while a fourth student throws money into the air.

The video was allegedly posted by a former Hazard High student.

There are more pictures showing a boy in lingerie pole dancing and others posing in women’s undergarments.

Gov. Andy Beshear responded to the photos and videos Thursday during a press briefing, calling the actions “totally unacceptable” and “inappropriate.”

The district and state leadership “need to take appropriate action and ensure that this will never happen again,” he proclaimed.

He also said that adults at the school were rightfully criticized for letting the events take place and district leadership should “make sure that we’re raising our kids right about what is and is not acceptable, especially in the world that we live in.”

“The results of the district’s investigation and what punishments are given should be made public,” Beshear added.

Mobelini has been criticized twice before for students drinking while he was present and he is facing a lawsuit over a 2019 field trip that he was chaperoning. A female student claimed that she was raped by another student on his watch. She is asserting that Mobelini and two other teachers failed to properly chaperone the trip and did not investigate her claim. She reportedly has since relocated to another school.

Mobelini and the other teachers who are being charged have requested that the case be dismissed. The trial is scheduled to begin in August of next year.

Many don’t see the humor in the event and find it wildly inappropriate:
