Irving, Tx (CNN) — Yearbooks at Irving High School in Texas have been recalled because of an offensive remark was printed underneath a student's photo.
In a group photo, the caption "Ugly Hoe" appeared instead of the cheerleader's name.
District Spokeswoman, Leslie Weaver, says some yearbooks were handed out before the remark was caught and the picture quickly made its way to social media sites.
"Out educators have hears 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," said Weaver.
Weaver also says the yearbook was checked by a student and faculty editors before it went to print. The district said it will not take long to figure out who wrote the offensive remark.
The district has apologized and has launched an investigation.
