When you hear that a principal has been fired after appearing in a Trey Songz video, you may immediately think, “Oh she must have been one of those scantily clad video vixens?”. Well in this case, you couldn’t be any farther from the truth.
A Southhampton principal appeared in J.R’s Best Friend ft. Trey Songz.
With only six words in the video, Esther Adler-O’Keefe portrayed a woman, who along with her husband, were going on vacation and left their house in the hands of Trey Songz and now she’s losing her principal position.
According to Newsday, the former principal is now reassigned to “oversee a variety of academic support services throughout the district”—the direct result of her brief cameo in the music video.
The school district issued a statement about the video and their reason for reassigning the principal.is.
“The video in question showcases behaviors and language use that is not promoted by the Southampton School District,” school superintendent Dr. Scott Farina tells the Southampton Press. “In fact, we actively teach our students the importance of good character and making smart choices. Additionally, this is not representative of who we are as a district, nor of our students and staff.”
According to Adler-O’Keefe, she never knew what the video was about, or the lyrics and content.
