(Scroll down for video) A video that was uploaded to YouTube showing kids slapping one anothers’ behinds, is causing a stir with parents in Nevada.

However, students claim that “Slap-ass Friday,” is a tradition that has gone on for years in many Las Vegas middle schools.

One mother, who called the action bullying, decided to keep her daughter out of school on Fridays until school officials do something to stop the slapping on the behinds.

In one of the videos that was uploaded to the Internet, a male student was seen walking up to an unsuspecting female student while she was talking with her friend, slapped her on the behind and walked away.

Some students use their bare hands to slap girls while others use bookbinders to do so.

While students said that it is an old tradition, which has been going on in middle schools, school officials and school police claim that they had no knowledge of the issue until parents complained.

School officials said that they are looking into the claims. They are gathering more information and will handle the issue appropriately.
