A racist TikTok video made by local teens ends up going viral
Two local teens expelled from school after recording a video for a social media trend on TikTok.
Two Carrollton High School seniors were expelled Friday and won’t be allowed to graduate after a racist video they posted online went viral. In a statement, Carrollton City Schools Superintendent Mark Albertus said the students’ behavior was unacceptable and “not representative of the district’s respect for all people.”“The racist behavior observed in the video easily violates this standard,” he said. “They are no longer students at Carrollton High School.”
The video initially posted to the social media platform TikTok on Thursday, went viral after showing the two teenagers using the n-word and making disparaging remarks about black people. The 50-second clip was shared so many times that “Carrollton” was trending on Twitter by Friday morning. Source
