Published Jan 08, 2020A parent has written a complaint to Elgin Park Secondary School in Surrey, alleging that their child was shown Don't F*** with Cats in class and is traumatized as a result.
The controversial Netflix documentary tells the story of online amateur sleuths who set out to uncover the identity of a man who killed kittens in a video online — and in the process, discovered Canadian serial killer Luka Magnotta.
The three-part series features graphic videos posted online by Magnotta, including footage of dead kittens and images of a human murder victim being tortured.
As CTV reports, an anonymous letter was sent to the superintendent in Surrey, and it read, "No doubt many adults would be disgusted and horrified if they witnessed something so awful and so violent. But for children, the damage is incalculable."
The parent's letter also claimed that their child came home on the last day before Christmas break — when the documentary was allegedly shown to the class — "crying and upset to the point of being hysterical and vomiting."
The parent wishes to remain anonymous to protect the identity of their child.
"We are aware of the parent's concerns and we've received the letter," the school district's spokesperson Ritinder Matthews told CTV. "The principal is investigating the matter."
