A high school principal is speaking out after her students allegedly received “unacceptable” chants during a basketball game.

The incident occurred when St.

Joseph High School in Santa Maria, California, played against nearby Righetti High School .

As the game ended, several students in Righetti’s student section could be heard chanting, “Where’s your passport?” the 'Santa Maria Times' reported.

The St.

Joseph’s basketball team reportedly has one player from France and three from Puerto Rico.

Joe Bailey, a reporter with the paper, posted a video of the incident on Twitter, calling it a “disappointing ending to a good game”.

Erinn Dougherty, the principal at St.

Joseph’s, can be seen walking toward the Righetti student section in the video.

She told the 'Santa Maria Times' the following day that she would “not allow” that sort of rhetoric near her students.

Kenny Klein, a spokesman for Santa Maria Joint Union High School District called the chants “unacceptable” .

And revealed in a statement that the situation is still being investigated.

Administrators have emphasized that, although disappointing, the students words were not racially motivated
