Thankfully we don’t have to turn on 106 & Park and vote for the “Rape Dat Ho” video out of Memphis, Tennessee. In fact, it is an amateur production allegedly put together by Mitchell high school students reports Allhiphop.com. A local CBS affiliate News Channel 3 (WREG-TV) launched an investigation into the video to hopefully uncover the identities of those participating in the video.
YouTube ran the video, but later explained it as offensive and removed it from the site. The video was entitled “Mitchell High School Memphis… Rape Dat Ho.” According to Allhiphop.com, the video seemed to be shot on school grounds, and includes at least seven students simulating sexual acts. One parent described the video as “sex with clothes on.” Also, while the students dance, others are seen and heard in the background chanting “Rape Dat Ho.”
In addition to this video, another tape surfaced where similar behavior is being taped and school administrators walk by as though nothing is going on. The principal has apologized for the incident and the Memphis county school spokesperson has vowed immediate discipline if indeed the students belong to any of the schools in their system.
