A Black teenager from Oklahoma decided to defend herself – violently – after she was called a racial slur by a White teen.

Footage of the incident between Aleeyah and an unidentified teen went viral on Tuesday. Aleeyah claimed the teen threatened to shoot her, resulting in the two meeting at her home. After the young girl called the Oklahoma native the n-word, she punched her in the face.

The teen was left with bruises and cuts on her mouth after the incident.

Because the encounter occurred while the students were on spring break, their high school hasn’t released a comment on the matter. Aleeyah took to Twitter to reveal that she contacted the police about the fight: “I personally do not condone violence but I can not stand back while I along with my culture is disrespected #blacklivesmatter,” Aleeyah tweeted Wednesday.

Many were left divided, because while it’s admirable for Aleeyah to stand up for herself, others believe violence is never the answer. Aleeyah responded:

The teen has launched a GoFundMe to help support legal fees she may face.
