RICHMOND – Richmond-Burton Community High School students will get their winter dance after all.

The Jan. 25 dance was postponed following an incident where a student displayed a sex toy during an assembly. The new date has been set for Feb. 22.

A YouTube video of the incident had more than 60,000 views less than a week after it was posted.

The account that posted the video has since been terminated by YouTube due to “multiple third-party notifications of copyright infringement.”

Several other versions of the video have a collective 4,000-plus views.

The video shows two Richmond-Burton High School students, one male and one female, walking arm in arm on the basketball court in the school gymnasium during what appears to be a school assembly. When they get to halfcourt, the female drops to her knees and begins to pantomime worshipping the male.

The male then pulls out a sex toy from his pants and dances at center court. The video then shows the male student being taken out of the gym by school officials.
