Carlie Beck: The Playboy Photos

Carlie Beck was Playboy’s “Cyber Girl of the Week” earlier this year. A parent of a girl who was unable to try out for the cheerleading team reportedly brought Beck’s Playboy photos to the administration’s attention, leading to her termination.

Recently, a group of freshmen cheerleaders stood outside the school with signs stating their support for Beck. They chanted: “We want Carlie Back!” The girls told a local TV station they didn’t see anything wrong with Carlie Beck’s photos, saying she was an “amazing coach” and a “role model.”
