Amherst Police telll 7 Eyewitness News that the playground at  Maple East Elementary School was covered in "vulgar slurs and derogatory comments "over the weekend. 

" 'Sit here if gay," was written on a playground seat. The N-word was written on the side of the building. The playground slide was also vandalized," Channel 8 reported
