Georgia High School Marching Band Spells Out Racial Slur During Halftime Show

Members of a Georgia high school band used letters on their instruments to spell out a racial slur

The Brookwood High School marching band in Snellville, Georgia, is being investigated after its sousaphone players spelled out a racist slur with their horn covers during the band's halftime game.

Normally the band uses the instrument covers to spell out the mascot Broncos.

A high school marching band caused outrage by spelling a racist word in an ill-judged prank at a football game.

The students used instrument covers to spell out the word "c**n" at Brookwood High School in Snellville, Georgia, Friday night, sparking an investigation by officials.

As he addressed students, teachers and the entire school community, he apologized for the "completely unacceptable, racial term" and guaranteed the students involved would face "disciplinary action".

Band members typically don't wear the covers on the field, however, because they muffle the sound from their instrument.
