Girl confesses her assault story was made up

Article here. Excerpt:

'The black high school student who accused three white male classmates of pinning her down and cutting off her dreadlocks has 'acknowledged' that she made the allegation up, according to her school.

Amari Allen, 12, claimed she was held down by three boys who cut her hair off at their $12,000-a-year school. She also gave a tearful interview about it afterwards and said they called her hair 'ugly' and 'nappy', a racist term that is used to derogatorily describe African American women's hair.

They also shared photos of her uneven hair after the alleged incident.

On Monday, however, the child's family issued a statement to it was false and to apologize to the boys.

Why the claims were fabricated remains unclear.

The family asked for forgiveness in their statement and said they had 'betrayed the wider community.'

'To those young boys and their parents, we sincerely apologize for the pain and anxiety these allegations have caused.'
