The gangbusters comedy "Bridesmaids" has inspired many jokes, but at a Malibu High School, the film brought about a very unfunny scene.

According to TMZ, last week, a teacher forced 9th grader Dionne Evans to stand in front of the class and asked her if she'd ever seen "Bridesmaids." Then, she slapped her six times in the face for allegedly forgetting her notebook.

The instructor was apparently referencing the scene when Melissa McCarthy tried to slap some sense into Kristen Wiig when she was down and depressed.

The NAACP told TMZ that they are investigating the incident and that the teacher will be placed on administrative leave in the interim.
