Laraine Cook, a high school basketball coach in Idaho, was fired in late October for posting this picture on her Facebook page, which features her fiancé, Tom Harrison (who is also a coach at the same school), giving her bikini-clad boob a squeeze while on vacation.
An anonymous troller of Cook’s Facebook page brought the photo to the attention of the Pocatello High School administration, who reprimanded Cook for posting it. Within 24 hours, Cook had removed the photo, but that wasn’t enough. The school gave Cook her walking papers on the grounds that her picture was “immoral.” Meanwhile, Harrison, Pocatello’s football coach and the squeezer of Cook’s boob, walked away from the incident without so much as a warning. The alleged reason being that Harrison was not responsible for the incident because the photo was posted on Cook’s Facebook page.
Cook is suing the district, claiming that the photo was not offensive enough to earn her a firing.
“In my personal opinion, I don’t feel that photo is something to have me terminated on. I don’t feel that it’s an immoral photo, and that’s what the termination is based on,” she told local news.
I have to say, I’m with Cook. It probably wasn’t the best choice of photos to post on Facebook, but the last time I checked there was nothing immoral about tit squeezing. In fact, it’s supposed to be good for you. Tell me if you disagree in the comments.
