Sexyy Red has provided a reaction to the situation surrounding her appearance at a St. Louis high school.

The controversy sparked as a video emerged that has her entering the gymnasium, supposedly making gang-related hand signs, and flipping off the students. “Inappropriate” was stated by critics on Twitter regarding her performance, leading to questions about the school's judgment in inviting her.

Many have highlighted that her music is renowned for its explicit and sexual content, a feature that they find inappropriate for a high school setting.

Despite that, Red made a statement on Twitter to clarify her visit's intent. She clarified that her purpose for being there was to support a charitable cause, aiming to contribute to the student's upcoming prom.
