A 425-pound Iowa teacher being suspended after holding a student down and “farting in his mouth” is fake news. There is no truth to a report about the teacher’s inappropriate punishment of a student.
Where did this fake news originate? In October 2017, two disreputable web sites published the story claiming that a morbidly obese Iowa teacher had been arrested after “sitting on an understudy’s head and flatulating in his mouth abandoning him heaving for air.”
Originally, the disgusting and disturbing story about an Iowa teacher’s decision to punish a student by farting in his mouth appeared on the World News Daily Report. You can read the fake news below:
An Iowa teacher at Kensington elementary school has been suspended from her functions after allegedly sitting on a student’s head and farting in his mouth leaving him gasping for air.
The 34-year-old teacher, Ann Margaret DeVille, apparently wanted to teach the student a valuable lesson after the young man allegedly made a public comment on her “ugly fat ass.”
“She pushed him to the ground, lifted her robe and just sat her ass on his face and then just let out the biggest fart in front of all his classmates,” she added.
“He was gasping for air. He thought he was going to die,” explained the victim’s mother to reporters.
However, there is no truth to the above story, according to Snopes. The photograph of “Ann Margaret DeVille” was published to Imgur on May 6, 2015. The image used in the fake news article was unrelated to any incidents involving obese teachers and young students in Iowa.
Here are some examples of people sharing the fake news on social media.
