A pair of Florida teenagers will be going to school somewhere else -- after a video of their racist rant went viral on the internet.

Things at Gainesville High School got extremely tense after the girls posted the 14-minute YouTube video on Wednesday.

In it, they railed against African-Americans -- calling them stupid people who would rather spend money on name-brand clothing and iPhones than housing and food.

Police officers were called to the school on Thursday, after concern grew over student safety as word of the video spread across campus.
The school's principal wouldn't get into any specifics on disciplinary action taken - but said that the teen girls are moving on.

"The students are leaving Gainesville High School, and will not be students here," said Principal David Shelnutt. "There's no place for that in the Alachua County Public School System, and my opinion, no place for that in society in general."
