ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Bank of America says an offensive comment on a Facebook post was not made by one of their employees.

WALB News 10 received several complaints after a comment on our Facebook post about an Albany High schoolyard fight.

The comment was attributed to a Britany Blount, and a profile that stated she works for Bank of America.

A spokesperson for Bank of America said no one with that name works for their company.

Bank of America also condemned the comment, calling it despicable. The bank's IT department is investigating.
