Students at a top-rated Massachusetts public high school are blasting WFXT and investigative reporter Mike Beaudet for confronting a teacher about his apparent porn star past.

In a story that first aired during the Fox O&O’s 6 p.m. newscast on Tuesday, Beaudet confronted Kevin Hogan, an English teacher and crew coach at Mystic Valley Regional Charter School, about his alleged appearances in at least three gay porn videos.

At this point in the internet age, so many people have appeared nude on video, I think it's silly to condemn someone for it. It's essentially normal behavior now.

Good. We need roles models teaching our children, not people who sell their bodies for sex.

As for your statement on us being in the internet age, just because a lot of people have posted nude pictures of themselves online, that makes it okay or acceptable?

Role models are people that have overcome obstacles and disadvantages to do good with their lives. I would think that Mr Hogan is an excellent role model, putting a salacious past behind him and working to educate young people and give them the skills to be successful in life.

Maybe you'd like to share what behavior is/is not acceptable for a teacher?

It's only normal behavior to the abnormal.

I know if you have something like a DUI conviction in many states one cannot be licensed. I guess if one cannot be a teacher based on that, being a porn star should be an issue too.

Taking it in the azz and sucking c**k for money is not acceptable behavior for a role model.

They throw the female porn stars out, why not be fair & balanced instead of the double standard?

Freaks of nature will always need a thumb to suck on.

Just proof that things were not this way in the past and much of our society has been conditioned to accept this behavior as normal and OK - when it is truly deviant.
