No one seems to know how the caption “Ugly Hoe” made its way to the final print of Irving High School’s 2013 yearbook. But now Irving Independent School District in Texas is attempting to investigate how it could have possibly happened and has no doubt they’ll find the culprit.

In a report from KHOU, the school says they have evidence the approved version did not contain the slander, but the book was printed with the remark in place of the cheerleader’s name.

One student found the picture on Twitter. “I think it’s wrong to bully her that way,” he said. “No one deserves to be bullied like that.”

From KHOU:

“Our educators have hearts and concern for the students, so immediately our concern is for that student and her well being, and to make sure we get this problem corrected as quick as possible,” Weaver said.

The district said the student who did this will be punished under the district’s code of conduct.

Administrators are trying to figure out how to fix the problem and replace the books.

Maybe the school should also look at the company responsible for printing the yearbook, especially since the approved version was sent without “ugly hoe” listed as the cheerleader’s name.

Also, this is a “hoe”:

    obviously this was almost certainly printed by a soon unemployed white person–adding the “e” is a dead giveaway;

      Right. Only White people spell ‘hoe’ with the ‘e’.

    I hope they catch the culprits and make them pay for the new yearbooks, this stuff is getting out of hand with these kids, and kids need to start learning accountability and consequences. Also bad job by the yearbook committee not to pick that up, I was on a yearbook committee and they let it be known it was up to us to spot anything offensive. Now some kids said some things that were funny usually a joke about the future or a class in school they couldn’t wait to be done with but, that’s as far as it went.

    Also I don’t buy they don’t know who did it because that’s how school is, people cant wait to run their mouths like bath water over their dumb antics. That’s why college is the great neutralizer to all that because whatever big shot, most popular, the hottest, big bad bully gets thrown out at college. Leave the confines of high school and get to college rude awakening, its about getting that degree, no one cares about your high school status. That company who prints it gets the side eye as well.
