Fans on Social Media Question School's Decision to Have Sexyy Red Appear
Sexyy Red's video has been viewed over 5 million times on Twitter. But the clip has also sparked outrage from fans who felt that Red's music is inappropriate for a high school setting. Many people thought Red was performing at the school, but that wasn't the case.
"Not sexyy red having an appearance at a high school. I just wanna know what principle approved that lol," wrote one fan.
Another commenter tweeted, "[I] like some of sexyy red songs but she shouldn’t be performing at any high school with those songs sorry [woman shoulder shrug emoji]."
A third person typed: "None of sexyy red's lyrics are high or middle school appropriate.
Imagine singing my coochie pink, my bootyhole brown in front of 13-17 year olds [three loudly crying emojis]."
Another user believed the backlash Sexyy Red received for being at a high school is much to do about nothing.
"Male rappers legit go to high schools all the time with their woman hating ass songs and y’all complaining about an old video of Sexyy Red going to a high school to give out prom money. What a dumb ass bunch," he wrote.

Following the backlash, Sexyy Red slid in the comment section of a Shade Room blog post to clarify why she appeared at a high school. The 25-year-old rapper confirmed that she didn't perform at the school and was there to do some charity work.
She wrote: "I actually didn't perform it was a prom week and I went up there to give the girls bundles and boys money for haircuts cause I remember when I needed help wit my prom stuff!"
The "SkeeYee" rhymer continued: "Pay attention to the fellas behind me with gags in their hands... shout @princebeautysupply for helping me make this happen [heart hand emoji and shaking hand emoji]. SEXYY LOVE DA KIDS."
