A Wisconsin middle school has been forced to apologize after showing students a video produced after Barack Obama's 2008 election that included celebrities pledging to 'be a servant to the President.'
Some parents who watched the video at an assembly at Hudson Middle School in Hudson, Wisconsin, called it propaganda and complained that it was inappropriate for young minds.
The video, produced by Oprah Winfrey's production company, includes celebrities like Demi Moore and Ashton Kutcher, Cameron Diaz and Eva Longoria.
It begins with the stars describing their pledges to do one thing to change the world.
KMSP-TV reports that the video was shown to students in an attempt to promote volunteerism for the 'International Day of Peace.'
Then, three and a half minutes into the four-minute video, Red Hot Chili Peppers singer Anthony Kiedis kisses both biceps and proclaims 'I pledge to be of service to Barack Obama.' http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2438440/School-forced-apologize-showing-students-Obama-campaign-video-includes-celebrities-pledging-servant-President.html
