An assistant principal of a Mississippi elementary school says that he was fired after choosing to read a book about butts to a group of second graders.
Gary Road Elementary School in Byram chose to lay off Toby Price without a warning after he read Dawn McMillan's book, 'I Need a New Butt,' to seven-and eight-year-old students last week, WJTV reported.
Price confirmed he was given the boot in a Facebook post from March 7, sharing that he had been fired 'for reading an awesome book to kids'. He also created a GoFundMe page, in which he shares that 'I Need a New Butt' is a 'funny silly book' and 'a book that kids love'.
'I am just looking for some help to pay bills while I look for another job,' he further wrote. 'I have two kids with autism and another BPD. Thank you for helping. We have found an attorney and need help with the fee.'
He also told WLBT that he offered to read to students on zoom after an expected guest reader was a no-show.
'My boss told me "Go ahead and read,"' he said. 'I grabbed one of my favorite books that I had nearby, I read it to them.'
'I didn't think twice about reading it because I've never had an issue with it before,' Price added. 'There are other books that have much more suggestive material that are much more widely accepted.'
However, Hinds School District, of which Gary Road Elementary is a part of, took a dig at Price in his termination letter for causing 'unnecessary embarrassment' and blamed his 'lack of professionalism and impaired judgement,' according to WJTV.

Theres more to this story. Guaranteed.
Looks a bit like a flamer.
No adult that is not a parent, family, legal guardian or a medical professional needs to be discussing ‘bathing suit’ zones with children.
This guy was ‘breaking down walls’ or bringing familiarity to a body part he had no right to.
And he is coming across all innocent, like HE is the victim when he was inappropriately discussing children’s private parts. I’d like to see how far he would get in that book if he took it to a biker bar and started reading. He chose the kids because they can’t defend themselves and their parents weren’t notified.
Reading a book about butts to little boys? Yeah, that’s not gay or pedo, nope, not at all!
There is more to the story - look at his picture in Comment #3.
Ya think??? My gaydar is on HIGH!!!
All these years I’ve had a crack in my butt to find out I need a new one.
“I have two kids with autism and another BPD”
This is a red flag, he is fostering or adopting children with problems that are easier to manipulate and exploit.
This bastard needs more than being fired.
I think there might be a little more to this “story”.
A quick read of some reviews and it sounds like a crude, poorly written & possible creepy (innuendos) book that uses all those slightly “bad” words you get realllly tired of hearing when little ones are at a certain age.
I had read that now I’m wondering who his “guest reader” really was. One of those men who dress up as women?
Wow what a moron that guy is
And now you know why the students do not know anything.
Joe says his is wiped.
a three dollar bill doesn’t look that queer...
You know, after reading some of the replies on this thread, I am honestly surprised.
I actually went and looked up the book and it seems to be something similar to a Dr. Suess book in nature. While I didn’t see all of it, what I did see didn’t have anything that I would find suggestive or objectionable.
And, according to the article, the guy has two children who are autistic and one that has what I assume is Bipolar Disorder (BPD?) who he is now trying to feed without a job. I don’t know the guy nor do I think that the article presents the whole story either. But, I think I would like to know a little more about what his history is and what really happened before I condemn him as a gay pedophile in a simple knee-jerk reaction.
Before swallowing a media story hook, line, and sinker, you might try actually doing a little research or is that too much to ask?
If we only had males that were men now like they were in the 1950s. This . to use the term loosely, guy would still be in traction.
Yeah, he probably smokes the White Owl.
If any of the parents that had children at that school were men instead of males. There would have been. He would still be in the hospital in traction. Instead, some other school will pick him up and he won’t miss a beat.
