A principal at a New Jersey high school where rapper Fetty Wap recorded a music video has been placed on leave.
Paterson schools Superintendent Donnie Evans announced during a school board meeting last week that East Side High School’s principal of operations, Zatiti Moody, has been placed on paid administrative leave.
The district is investigating how Fetty Wap was allowed to record the video, which included drug references and a pole dancer, in his old high school. A district spokeswoman said the video was shot during noninstructional hours and didn’t include students.
