Update (8:55 p.m. Jan. 31)
Officials with the Canyon Independent School District provided a statement to MyHighPlains.com surrounding the Tik Tok gaining attention late last week, specifically stating that the student did not receive disciplinary action because “the events referenced did not occur on a CISD campus.”
This comes after a series of TikTok videos were sent to MyHighPlains.com last week by dozens of viewers, depicting a student making a reference to a person holding a sign with a racial slur written on it. A second video talked about a punishment the student allegedly received after the video was posted. Both videos have since been deleted from the TikTok platform.
The statement from the district, released on the Randall High School Twitter page, reads as follows:
“Randall High School has been made aware of concerning content that is circulating on social media. The events referenced did not occur on a CISD campus. The disciplinary actions referenced in the posts on social media are not accurate and due to the fact that the events occurred off-campus there are no school consequences given.”
CANYON, Texas (KAMR/KCIT) — A TikTok video gaining attention on Friday (Jan. 28) has been sent to MyHighPlains.com by dozens of viewers and depicts a student making a reference to a person holding a sign with a racial slur written on it.
In the first video, the boy references what appears to be a photo of a girl holding a sign with the N-word on it.
In a second video, the boy talks about the punishment he said that he is now facing because of posting the first video. In the second video, he said, an administrator told him the picture with the racial slur happened a long time ago.
When MyHighPlains.com reached out to Canyon ISD about the videos, a spokesman said:
“Canyon ISD declines to comment on an issue that was addressed two years ago,”Canyon Independent School District
The videos have since been deleted from TikTok.
