WOODBURY - A brief appearance in a music video has a Southampton assistant principal in some hot water.

Esther Adler-O'Keefe reportedly made a cameo in the video for the JR and Trey Songz hit "Best Friend."

The song features some obscene lyrics, and the music video contains bikini-clad women, drugs and alcohol.

The school district says in a statement: "The video in question showcases behaviors and language use that is not promoted by the Southampton School District. In fact, we actively teach our students the importance of good character and making smart choices. Additionally, this is not representative of who we are as a district nor of our students and staff."
