Children were present when the two filmed the video at Douglas County High School last month, according to WSB.

A district official told the news station the stars had permission to film at the school for the MTV horror series “Scream,” not to shoot the rap video.

“I can’t believe they did that at school,” parent Francis Glass told WSB.

Glass said she thought Palmer, who has starred in stage, television and movie productions such as “Akeelah and the Bee,” always carried herself with class. 

“And this is not class,” Glass said. “Oh no. That's trashy.”

The video has been viewed more than 6 million times.
