A black student and five other classmates allegedly beat a Tennessee teen after he reportedly used the n-word during a confrontation with the group, according to WREG. The six students at Millington Central High School reportedly approached 15-year-old Ethan Humphrey on Friday after Ethan had refused to play football with the group earlier in the week.

During the confrontation, Ethan reportedly dropped the n-word, and the group pounced on the teen. Several students told the news station that he did use the word, but he was repeating what was said to him: “that my n–ger has my back.”

One teen reportedly punched Ethan in the head twice, while another body-slammed him into the desk and then onto the floor. Ethan’s mother told WREG that her son suffered a broken collarbone and a concussion from the altercation.

Raw Story notes that the teen was hospitalized for his injuries and that his mother was considering withdrawing him from school.
