In a real-life story that is practically ripped from an episode of Glee, the mayor of Carrollton, Ga. has cancelled a stage production of The Rocky Horror Show that was slated to open Oct. 27 at the city-owned Carrollton Cultural Arts Center after viewing a risqué video clip from rehearsal. “I found it very offensive, not in keeping with the community of Carrolton, if you will,” Garner told Atlanta’s NBC-11 news. Watch the news report below:

The cast of the production now hopes to perform their show at a private venue — which the mayor would have no problem with — and they’ve rallied support on Facebook.
