An irate mom has shared her outrage over her seven-year-old child's "creepy underwear" homework assignment this week.

According to a report by WPXI-TV News, Briahana Grant - whose daughter is currently in the second grade at Pittsburgh Liberty in Shadyside, Pittsburgh - was left disturbed while assisting her daughter with her homework.

The mom noticed that one of her child's assignments asked her to post images on her underwear on the internet.

Take a look at the news report on the assignment in the video below:

The email assignment in question read:

"POST a PICTURE of your Creepy Underwear HERE! (Or just tell us about it!) [sic]

"If you can, upload a picture of your Creepy Underwear! (If not just write about it – why does it look like, how does it act…) [sic]"

Per WPXI, Grant was so upset by the assignment she took the computer away from her daughter and immediately contacted the school's principal.

Once she'd reached them, she demanded that the school staffer who had the email assignment be fired over the inappropriate homework.

Speaking to WPXI in a recent interview, Grant stated: "I’m more bothered that myself, as well as other parents whose children have seen this, have to explain to their kids how important it is not to do this.

"I’m upset about it. I don’t want my daughter engaged in anything, uploading anything personal to the internet. I was so angry I took pictures of it."

According to Fox 23 News, the assignment was handed out to the second graders after they read a Halloween-inspired children’s book called Creepy Pair of Underwear.

Per WPXI, a school district spokesperson issued a statement on the incident, writing:

"The District is aware of a questionable activity assigned by an educator as part of a class reading of the Halloween themed book Creepy Pair of Underwear.

"The assignment has been removed, and the incident is currently under review. As this is a personnel matter, no further information is available."

Written by author Aaron Reynolds, the picture book tells the story of a young rabbit named Jasper, who tries to convince his mother that he’s old enough to wear a glow-in-the-dark pair of underpants with a Frankenstein-inspired design.
