WTF?! Why is This High School Principal in a Raunchy Rap Video?

Pin It
As a teen, I recall it being totally awkward running into any adult faculty member outside of school. Whether it involved crossing paths with a teacher at the grocery store or even worse, the mall, it was honestly a situation I'd do just about anything to avoid. But none of those cringe-worthy encounters even came close to this group of high school students who saw their principal in a racy rap music video. about having a major case of face-palmy, secondhand embarrassment.

According to Seventeen, students at Southampton High School in Southampton, New York spotted their assistant principal Esther Adler-O'Keefe and her husband Brian in the video for "Best Friend," which is performed by JR and Trey Songz.

It's one thing to see your assistant principal in a music video and be super geeked because she starred in a rap video and possibly bumped shoulders with an R&B singer who may or may not be your crush of the moment. She's about to be famous, and by extension, you might be too! But then you see that the video is basically one extended twerk sesh, with F-bombs galore, drugs, alcohol and barely-there attire and you can hardly contain your OMGs and WTFs.

The New York Post refers to Esther as a strict, no-nonsense "disciplinarian," so what on Earth could explain her questionable extracurricular activities? Well, the assistant principal released a statement in which she claims she had no idea what the video entailed prior to accepting the job.

"Had I known of such content or lyrics, I certainly would not have participated in any fashion. I find the lyrics and content of the music video vulgar, offensive and demeaning."

The school declined to give details on how they plan to discipline the principal. But in the meantime, Esther, we're gonna let you finish but you might want to come up with a more believable explanation.
