LeVar Burton Reads Expletive-Filled Children's Story in NSFW Video

LeVar Burton

Try not to blush

LeVar Burton has no problem reading irreverent stories, but you don't have to take our word for it. 

The Reading Rainbow host and education advocate read the best-selling children's book Go the F— to Sleep for podcast Rooster Teeth's charity drive.

The reading was part of a 24-hour Extra Life stream that raised over $442,000 for Children's Miracle Network hospitals.

Go the F— to Sleep, written by Adam Mansbach and illustrated by Ricardo Cortes, was released in 2011. Samuel L. Jackson narrated the audiobook version, while Ken Marino and Erica Oyama have been hired to script the film adaptation.

Burton can soon be seen endorsing books of a more family-friendly variety, as a Kickstarter campaign earlier this year helped raise over $5 million to revive the show. 

Video of Burton reading the book can be seen below.
