A British boy who dressed as a Fifty Shades of Grey character was excluded from his school’s World Book Day celebrations, reports BBC. Liam Scholes’ Christian Grey costume — gray suit, cable ties and eye mask — was deemed “inappropriate,” says his mother, Nichola Scholes.
Grey is a billionaire who likes erotic sadism in the best-selling book.
“Liam was advised to dress as James Bond… but [he] was a promiscuous character who kills people,” said the mother. A teacher dressed as a “serial killer.”
Students who’d dressed as movie — not book — characters were allowed to participate, she added.
“It has been massively blown out of proportion,” she said. “It was meant as a laugh and tongue-in-cheek.”
