GROSSE POINTE FARMS, Mich. (AP) - The principal of a suburban Detroit high school says three students were among a group of teens who recorded a video that included racist statements about African-Americans.

Grosse Pointe South Principal Moussa Hamka says in an email Wednesday that comments in the video, which circulated on social media, are “deplorable” and violate the school’s code of conduct.

Hamka says several students found the video offensive. Officials say those involved in the video could face consequences.

Hamka says “the majority of our students and community members do not accept and will not tolerate such bigotry.”

In March, the school suspended students photographed with a racial slur on their bodies and another who had a message on her leg in support of marijuana. The photo was repeatedly shared on social media.
