Neither South Forsyth High School officials nor many students were impressed or amused by a “senior prank” that involved hanging a sign declaring “N–ga We Made It!” from the side of the school building Tuesday night, Fox 5 reports.

The phrase, linked to a lyric in a popular Drake song, was also drawn on some school windows, and the images quickly made their way to social media, prompting the school to respond with official statements.

“South Forsyth High School Parents: This morning, without our knowledge, students placed a derogatory sign with a verse from a song by Drake on our school as a senior prank. We removed it as soon as it was brought to our attention and deeply apologize for their behavior. This is unacceptable and I promise you that the students will receive the appropriate consequences for their actions,” one statement read, according to the news site.
