CNN's Gay Porn Citizen Reporter Fired From Teaching Job

He left the business to become a substitute teacher but went back to making porn.

One of CNN's citizen reporters, Sean Loftis, also happens to be a gay porn personality named "Collin O'Neal." In a drastic career change, he left the business to become a Miami-Dade county substitute schoolteacher, but was fired when school officials found out about his former life as a porn actor. So what did CNN's racy citizen journalist do? Went back to making porn films, naturally.

Gawker gives us the details:

O'Neal, who first came to my attention on his (NSFW) website World of Men, has covered floods and crocodile attacks for CNN's iReport, the section that allows citizen journalists to send in their photos and videos of news events. He gave up porn (and maybe citizen journalism) last spring when he decided to pursue teaching full time and worked as a substitute teacher in the Miami-Dade county public school system.

When some school officials found out about his former career, his teaching credentials were revoked. It seems a clause in the school district code says teachers must "conduct themselves, both in their employment and in the community, in a manner that will reflect credit upon themselves and the school system."

It seems curious that school officials did not find out about Loftis' former career during the routine background check they surely must have conducted prior to offering Loftis the job.

One also wonders what footage the citizen journalist will deliver to CNN next.

Below is an example of one of Loftis' citizen reports for CNN:
