Paterson principal involved in Fetty Wap music video controversy reinstated

A Paterson high school principal who was put on leave for allowing rapper Fetty Wap to film a music video inside the school has been reinstated.



The Paterson School Board tells News 12 New Jersey that Eastside High School Principal Zatiti Mood is now back at his post at the school. He was placed on paid leave in June after the music video was released.



Some school administrators took issue with the fact that the music video was filmed inside the school because it showcased drugs and scantily clad women inside the school.



An investigation by officials found the Moody was solely responsible for allowing the video shoot to take place.



The school board says some of the policies lacked clarity and they're now updating them.
