Alabama principal apologizes for obscene song at game

October 1, 2018

FAIRHOPE, Ala. (AP) — The principal of an Alabama high school is apologizing after a song with racial slurs and demeaning language about women was played at a high school football game.

News outlets report that Fairhope High School Principal Jon Cardwell sent a mass email to parents following Friday night’s game against Daphne High School.

Cardwell’s message says he has allowed students to have a sound system in the stands at football games. But a song played at the game included obscenities and racial epithets, plus misogynistic language.

The principal says he was “disgusted and ashamed” that the song was played. The song title isn’t identified in the message. Cardwell promises that such music won’t be played again.

Fairhope and Daphne are located along the coast across Mobile Bay from Mobile.
