EASTLAKE, Ohio - An Ohio high school principal says an anti-gay slur was chanted by so many students attending a football game that she won't suspend anyone.
North High School principal Jennifer Chauby estimates 300 students were involved in Thursday night's name-calling at the team from rival Willoughby South in the Cleveland suburbs.
Chauby says she moved in to stop the chanting and has issued announcements and met with individual students to convey the message that the behavior was unacceptable.
She tells The Plain Dealer of Cleveland that many students told her they were just following everybody else and didn't mean to hurt anyone.
The head of the Lesbian Gay Bisexual and Transgender Community Center of Greater Cleveland says the incident amounts to bullying.
