GUILDERLAND, N.Y. – A letter has been sent home to parents of Guilderland High School students regarding a video connected to the high school that was posted to YouTube.

Principal Thomas Lutsic sent out a letter to parents regarding the audio clip which has a photo of the Guilderland High School sign. 

The rap song was so vulgar that News10 ABC couldn't air it on television because of the obscene language. The song, which ran for five minutes and was posted to YouTube on Monday, contained the names of several Guilderland High School Students

"It was mean spirited," said Victor Warner, a sophomore at the high school.  He told News10 ABC that most of the students at school listened to the audio clip before it was taken down.  The audio clip which contains harassing language and lyrics about other students that is sexual in nature.

Victor's mother, Angela Warner was not too happy to learn about the audio clip Tuesday but is pleased to see the school taking immediate action

"There's gotta be a consequence a lesson learned," stated the mother, "I believe in the school district, I know they have zero tolerance for bullying."

The clip was taken down from the website at around 4 p.m. on Tuesday after Lutsic contacted the Google about the offensive audio clip.

Captain Curtis Cox of the Guilderland Police Department says the school's resource officer is working to investigate this case.

I know a lot of kids there, I'm actually in guilderland. I didn't see the video but when I got to school everyone was talking about it. I feel bad for the people who were cyber bullied but I don't think the other kids that made the video are actually going to learn anything from a year suspension. What is he going to learn by that?! Nothing! I think everyone in every school district should have a mandatory class talking about bullying!
