Porn star Sasha Grey read to school kids in Compton

Parents of students at one L.A. elementary school were a little displeased to hear who was reading Dav Pilkey's Dog Breath to first and third graders on Nov. 2: Adult film legend Sasha Grey. Oh, who are we kidding, "adult film star" -- she's the porn superstar who starred in such hits as Buttman's Stretch Class 2, Homo Erectus and Entourage ... as herself.

Grey was taking part in the Read Across America program by reading for kids at Compton's Emerson Elementary, TMZ reports. That credit on Entourage is probably what did it, because we can't imagine any school in America that would okay having a porn star show up to talk to kids. That's probably why, when parents complained, the school district told the site, "We have several celebrities who read to our students each year. The actress you have indicated was not present."

Problem is, TMZ has photos of her doing it -- reading, we mean (see them here) -- and the pornstress even tweeted about it at the time. And she's not taking the criticism, ahem, lying down.

"I committed to this program with the understanding that people would have their own opinions about what I have done, who I am and what I represent," Grey said in a statement to the site. Grey has long said porn was only a stepping stone to fame, and notes she hasn't been in a skin flick in two years. "I am an actor. I am an artist. I am a daughter. I am a sister. I am a partner. I have a past that some people may not agree with, but it does not define who I am. I will not live in fear of it. To challenge non-profit education programs is an exercise in futility, counter-productive and anti-educational."

Let's clear something up, Sasha: No one's challenging the program where people read stories to kids. You have to admit, though, that people probably wouldn't like a former porn star famous for telling a guy to punch her in the stomach during a sex scene interacting with their children. Although you know what's weird? Nobody would say boo if Kim "Sex Tape" Kardashian did this. Good thing she can't read.
