ROYAL OAK, Michigan —  A small group of middle school students in Michigan are being criticized for a lunchtime chant.

It is not clear what prompted the students to chant  ‘build the wall.’

It happened at Royal Oak Middle School.

The person who posted the video said some students were crying.

A spokesperson for the school told the Detroit News they have spoken with all students and emphasized the impact of words.
