The 12-year-old African-American girl who claimed three white classmates cut her dreadlocks off has admitted the claims were made up.

“We can now confirm that the student who accused three of her classmates of assault has acknowledged that the allegations were false,” Stephen Danish, who is the head of Immanuel Christian School, said in a statement.

As we reported, Amari Allen, said that three white boys pinned her down and cut her hair off and said it was “ugly” and “nappy.”

Amari’s aunt Lakeisha Allen said the family was “devastated,” and “embarrassed.”

Apparently, Amari had a verbal altercation with the boys.

Her family released an apology in regards to the incident,

“To those young boys and their parents, we sincerely apologize for the pain and anxiety these allegations have caused,” the Allen family said.

“To the administrators and families of Immanuel Christian School, we are sorry for the damage this incident has done to trust within the school family and the undue scorn it has brought to the school.

“To the broader community, who rallied in such passionate support for our daughter, we apologize for betraying your trust.

“We understand there will be consequences, and we’re prepared to take responsibility for them,” the girl’s family said.

“We know that it will take time to heal, and we hope and pray that the boys, their families, the school and the broader community will be able to forgive us in time.”
