The chief of the nation's second-largest school district is fuming over comedian Sacha Baron Cohen's magazine photo shoot with high school football players.
Los Angeles Superintendent Ramon Cortines isn't amused by the GQ magazine photos shot at Birmingham High School that feature the "Borat" star in his new incarnation as gay Austrian fashion reporter "Bruno."
The GQ cover story features pictures of Cohen wearing shoulder pads, tight red shorts, an athletic cup and little else as he poses with football players at the school in the San Fernando Valley.
Cortines told the Los Angeles Times that the district has "allowed our students to be used."
Local district superintendent Jean Brown told the paper she's trying to determine who was responsible.
