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

Brookwood High School band members spell out 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.

It wasn't clear if Wideman was talking about the Golden Knights or the Coyotes, who both topped Ottawa during its West Coast trip. Ottawa Senators' Matt Duchene was one of seven players caught in secret footage taken in an Uber vehicle .

One mother, Shawn Myers, said she was appalled and "will not stop" until the culprits are expelled. "The mascot is a horse, it's a Bronco, and the "B" and the "R" were nowhere near".

Photos of the incident were posted on social media and subsequently found by the school's administration whereupon the principle, Bo Ford, sent home a letter to parents explaining what happened.

Some parents told Fox 5 they wanted to see the students who were responsible expelled. "They do not need to be back in that school until they learn that everyone is there for the same reason - regardless of color - to get an education". Some parents are even calling for their expulsion.

Netizens have also spoken out, some joining in Myers' call to have the students expelled. He's also said that the students would be disciplined for their "hurtful, disrespectful and disappointing" actions.

According to the Clarion Ledger, the Forest Hill performance took place days after two officers from the Brookhaven Police Department were killed.
