LOS ANEGELES, Cali. — A song mocking the deceased Michael Brown is currently being investigated by the LAPD.

The song was sung during a December 15th party at the Elks Lodge in Glendale.

According to NBC-LA, the performance was put on by and for 40-60 retired -and possibly current- law officers.

Sung to the tune of “Bad, Bad Leroy Brown,” the song included lyrics calling Brown a “thug,” and said Brown “looked like some old Swiss cheese” after the shooting, with his brain “splattered on the floor.”

“The words and everything are deplorable and that’s not what the elks are about. We don’t want to be remembered for this one incident that was a non-sanctioned Elk event,” said Jerry Stevens with the board of trustees for the lodge.

LAPD also wants to make sure that the public does not correlate the song with their department.

“Preliminarily we have no indication that any active LAPD officers or civilian personnel attended the event or were a part of the contents in the video,” according to a department statement. “To be clear, the event has no nexus to the LAPD and was not an LAPD sanctioned event.”
