A video apparently showing two females using racist language surfaced in recent days causing an uproar on social media and prompting Temecula Valley High School Principal Allen Williams to issue a statement to school stakeholders. 

“It came to our schools’ attention that there is a video of a Temecula Valley High School student making racist remarks, which included use of the N-word,” Williams wrote on Friday. “This is despicable behavior and will not be tolerated.
“Please be assured that we will adhere to the California Education Code and the California Penal Code as we investigate and make determinations on consequences. Law enforcement has been notified and is working alongside us.”

The video, which is short in length, shows the two teenagers laughing and giggling as they make the derogatory statements, seemingly toward someone that Valley News has not yet determined. 

Valley News has chosen not to reveal the alleged names of the two females featured in the video. 

While TVHS reported that one of the students attends the school, it is unknown if the other person involved in the video attends school locally. 

This is a breaking news story that will be updated when more information becomes available.
