A wild brawl broke out at Overbrook High School in Philadelphia on Monday after a posting on Twitter.
The mass fight was recorded on a cell phone by an unidentified school employee (video below).
The fight began after a Twitter account was set up to name the "hoes" at the school.
“It’s mayhem. Students are in the halls, they’re smoking in the bathroom, cigarettes, marijuana,” the unidentified school employees told CBS Philadelphia. “We can’t contain them and it’s really hazardous for us working and these kids are not being educated at all.”
