One father posted the video on Facebook saying he was outraged because he felt his daughter experienced racism on the bus, Tuesday. Prior to Facebook deleting the clip, the video had more than 300 thousand views.

Wednesday, Principal Joey Jones sent a letter home, calling the students’ behavior offensive and inappropriate.  The letter explained, students were chanting a song they learned from a video about racial profiling that went viral to Vine and Youtube.
