You don’t really see much tarring and feathering these days.

But in Manhattan recently, some kids allegedly got treated to a display of plastered plumage.

Metaphorically, that is.

By way of a video.

And some parents are fed up.

As relayed by the New York Post, the elite Spence School is in hot water after a teacher showed kids an episode of TV-MA Showtime program Ziwe.

The new show — hosted by a 29-year-old comedienne of the same name — features a mix of interviews and comedy skits.

Here’s the trailer:

Clearly, it’s comedy.

But school mom Gabriela Baron isn’t laughing.

Per Gabriela — who’s Hispanic — the Ziwe footage was shown to her daughter’s class on the $57,000+/year academy’s last day of school.

“[The kids] sat there in their graduation dresses while the white mothers of the white students – many of whom volunteer, donate, call, email and do whatever the school asks of them – were tarred and feathered in a video their teacher showed them. While their white female teachers were mocked.”

Ziwe also asked women named Karen how they felt about their name being associated with “obnoxious, angry and entitled, often racist white women.”

On top of that, the host read lyrics to Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion’s sexually explicit song “WAP” (see the “clean” version’s music video here).

Ziwe was reportedly played for 15 students — in an 8th grade history class.

Gabriela said she was pulling her kid from the Upper East Side institution due to the “blatantly racist” video and Spence’s obsession with political correctness.

Other parents are upset as well.

In the aftermath, Spence School Head Bodie Brizendine issued an email stating thusly:

“This video is not part of the
