Her coach and teammates held her in the position against her willIf you’ve ever tried to teach yourself how to do the splits, you’ll know that it’s incredibly difficult and painful. But at least self-taught splits allows you to stop at any moment you want.
Distressing footage of a cheerleader at a Denver high school has gone viral as it shows the teenage girl being forced into the splits by her teammates and coach, against her will.
Denver police have confirmed that they are investigating the incident. And Denver Public Schools Superintendent Tom Boasberg said top school officials and cheer coaches have been put on temporary leave while investigations are pending. ‘With regards to certain videos, I cannot state strongly enough – as the superintendent of the school district and the father of two high school-aged daughters – that the images and actions depicted are extremely distressing and absolutely contrary to our core values as a public school community,’ Boasberg said in a statement. ‘In order to conduct a fair and thorough investigation, we have placed East Principal Andy Mendelsberg, East Assistant Principal Lisa Porter, East Cheer Coach Ozell Williams, East Assistant Cheer Coach Mariah Cladis and DPS Deputy General Counsel Michael Hickman on leave. ‘This is standard practice in an investigation of this type. It does not imply or prejudge in any way the actions of the individuals or what the investigation might determine.’
