While seniors all over the country are planning their end-of-the-year pranks, a group of teens at South Forsyth High School (SFHS) in Georgia found a way to be both stupid and racially offensive all at once.
Apparently inspired by Drake’s “We Made It” (or maybe they’ve been hanging with Gwyneth Paltrow), the kids hung a giant banner stating, “N-gga we made it 2k14” from the side of the school and scrawled the message across several windows around the school.
Exactly, Ye, exactly.
Before someone crawls out of the woodwork to blame Drake, or rap music, or Black people for “giving White people a pass” to use the n-word (because somehow, it’s always our fault), the folks over at SFHS aren’t too pleased about the joke.
The school released a statement apologizing for the offensive language and vowing to catch those involved.
“South Forsyth High School Parents: This morning, without our knowledge, students placed a derogatory sign with a verse from a song by Drake on our school as a senior prank. We removed it as soon as it was brought to our attention and deeply apologize for their behavior. This is unacceptable and I promise you that the students will receive the appropriate consequences for their actions.”
Looks like the seniors who thought this little stunt was a good idea should have borrowed Drake’s dance moves instead.
