Shocking and vulgar videos shared by school students to social media
A number of private boys’ school students are facing suspension after two shocking videos were shared to social media site TikTok.
The videos, which have since been taken down, depicted students lip-synching to misogynistic audio clips and performing vulgar gestures.
Nine News journalist Peter Fegan, who broke the story, told Neil Breen he was shocked by the content of the videos.
“The stuff in it is horrible.
“This is an important story to have out there.
“One, … how kids this age even understand these references has got me, and the second one is that parents need to know what these kids are up to.”
