Four members of a high school marching band spelt out a vile racist slur during a half-time performance at a football game.
The students used instrument covers to spell out the word ‘c**n’ at Brookwood High School in Snellville, Georgia, Friday night,sparking an investigation by officials.
They swapped around letters – not normally seen during performances, because they muffle the instruments – that spell out the name of the school’s team, the Broncos.

He added: ‘Not only was the appearance of this term during our halftime show disrespectful to audience members, it was also disappointing, as it does not reflect the standards and beliefs of our school and community.’
Ford insisted his school was ‘a very inclusive community’ that ‘care(s) about all of our students,’ acording to the Gwinnett Daily Post.
He said the students involved would be disciplined.
