A French man whose head-to-toe body art and black eyes makes him resemble an alien is upset over losing his kindergarten teaching job- after children complained of nightmares.
Sylvain Helaine, 35, who is pierced, tattooed and even had the whites of his eyes colored black, claims that parents weren’t too happy when young children from Docteur Morere Elementary School reportedly became traumatized by his appearance.
Interestingly enough, the Palaiseau resident is still teaching- just age six and up.
“All of my students and their parents were always cool with me because basically they knew me,” said Helaine, according to Reuters.
“It’s only when people see me from far away that they can assume the worst.”
Despite still being able to teach, Helaine was never satisfied with the course of action the school took.
“I think the decision they took was quite sad,” said Helaine.
According to Reuters, Helaine hopes to mold young minds to be more accepting of, well, everything.
“Maybe when they are adults they will be less racist and less homophobic and more open-minded,” he said.
