A Canadian university professor accidentally played a porn clip in an introductory psychology class that was attended by 500 students. The University of Toronto Professor Steve Joordens started his 9 am course at the Scarborough Campus titled Introduction to Biological and Cognitive Psychology by connecting his computer to the projector, without realizing he had pornography playing on his laptop.

The Toronto Sun reported that many students were surprised when the adult film played on a the big projector in the hall and quickly shared the incident on Snapchat. Some students can be seen leaving the class as the video played for at least 10 seconds.The professor was mortified as he scrambled to turn off the video.

“We can’t discuss personnel matters. But, we are aware of the situation and are encouraging students who are feeling unsettled to speak with staff at the Health & Wellness Centre,” a university spokesman said.

As the bizarre incident went viral some suggested that the incident was not accidental. Others thought that it was a great way to get the attention of students and a good strategy to keep students coming back to class. One student posted the video on Reddit and wrote, “I attended this lecture, and I can say with 100% confidence that this incident was not accidental, but rather an element of the lecture.”

The professor later clarified his mistake saying: “I want to be clear that what happened was completely unintentional and I feel absolutely terrible about it. I have apologized to my class and now I want to move on. Thanks to my students, colleagues and my amazing family for their support and understanding.”Follow us on Social Media
