The school reacts after a video of students licking their toes to raise funds went viral

Deer Creek School District has responded after a viral video showed its students licking each other’s toes to raise funds.

An Oklahoma school district is facing backlash after a video of students licking and sucking their toes in hopes of raising money went viral.

First obtained by Fox 25, the video shows four students lying face down on the ground. In front of each student was a pair of bare feet, while the crowd went wild as the students began licking and sucking the toes given to them.

Now, the school has responded to the backlash, claiming that the incident occurred during a fundraiser for Not Your Average Joe Coffee, whose mission is to recruit and inspire “disabled students and adults.” intellectual, developmental and physical disabilities”.

According to a statement obtained by Fox 25, the students involved paid to participate in a meet called “Clash of Class” that saw students in ninth through twelfth grades compete in multiple “competition organized by students”.

“All participants in the meeting were students who registered for the game(s) they played ahead of time,” the statement read. It went on to state that “No Deer Creek faculty or staff participated in any games during this Clash of Class meeting.”

“Many dedicated students have generously given their personal time to achieve this important achievement, which will serve communities beyond the boundaries of Deer Creek.”

According to Deer Creek High School, students were able to raise a total of $152,830.38 and the school thanked all patrons, businesses and sponsors for their contributions.

However, many people still expressed outrage at the “disgusting” contest, with someone writing on X: “The event took place at a school but no school officials participated? Who organized it? That’s a pretty pathetic response. Whoever wrote it must have tried to cover up that disgusting event by pointing out how much money they had raised.”
