A black girl was pulled out of class and humiliated in front of her classmates over her “unnatural” hair extensions.
A video of the incident was posted on Instagram, showing the tearful girl gathering her books and other belongings before leaving school with her parents, reported WGNO-TV.
Christ the King Parish School allows only “natural” hair, and the girl had already gotten her braided hair extensions redone last week in an attempt to comply with the policy.
“The new hairstyle was still not in compliance with the new hairstyle policy,” said Archdiocese Catholic Schools Superintendent RaeNell Billiot Houston. “At that point the parent made the decision to remove her child from the school.”
The Instagram video shows a white teacher or school official explaining why the girl was removed from class.
“It’s not just her hair,” the woman says. “Several of our boys on the team … it’s still a hairstyle that they’re choosing to do.”
The girl continues crying as she leaves the school building with her parents and gets into a car parked outside.
The student’s name, age and grade were not reported.
A 6-year-old black boy with dreadlocks was turned away earlier this month from his Florida elementary school because his hairstyle was banned.
Officials at A Book’s Christian Academy in Apopka said boys were permitted to have short hair only.
It just happened again.
Christ The King Middle School in Gretna, Louisiana expelled this beautiful young Black girl saying that her hair style was "unnatural."
She was humiliated and removed from the school over it.

Ivanka Trump wants to be the ‘first female president’ — but there’s one major obstacle
Ivanka Trump is harboring political ambitions after she leaves the White House after her father's election loss.
It's not clear where President Donald Trump's eldest daughter will live, along with her husband and fellow White House adviser Jared Kushner, but their former friends, colleagues and associates believe Ivanka Trump will try to build up her influence in the Republican Party, reported the Washington Post.
“I think she’d want to be the [first] female president,” said Marissa Velez Kraxberger, a film producer who worked for Ivanka for two years at her now-defunct company. “I don’t think she’s actually ever had any interest in fashion but everything was an angle to gain more power in whatever possible way.”
GOP senator knows Trump lost but thinks it would be ‘political suicide’ to admit it: report
Sen. Ron Johnson (R-WI) is still spouting conspiracy theories about the election being "stolen" from President Donald Trump -- but according to one former Wisconsin Republican official, Johnson understands that Trump lost.
Mark Becker, the former Chairman of the Brown County Republican Party, writes at The Bulwark that he had a conversation with Johnson after the election in which the senator acknowledged Trump's defeat.
However, Johnson said that he was loath to admit it publicly because of the strong support the president had received from Wisconsin GOP voters, despite the fact that the president narrowly lost the state this year.
‘Dumbest senator ever’: Morning Joe mocks Republican Ron Johnson
MSNBC's Joe Scarborough mocked Sen. Ron Johnson (R-WI) for demanding proof of something that doesn't exist.
Attorney General William Barr announced the Department of Justice had found no evidence of voter fraud, as President Donald Trump has claimed, and Johnson called on Barr to "show everybody" the proof that the election had not been stolen.
"The man Guinness Book of World Records has called the dumbest senator to ever be sworn in in this constitutional republic," Scarborough said. "I'm speaking, of course, of Ron Johnson, who said that William Barr must show his evidence that he has no evidence."
