A horrifically cruel joke was played on 16-year-old Dylan Worthen by the creators of his high school yearbook.

Under his photo of him posing with his school’s marching band, his last name was changed to read “Worthen-Freak.”

This caption is present in all of the 900 books that were published and released.

“At first I thought everyone was joking around with me because only a couple people came up to me,” Dylan told Fox News Atlanta when asked about the first time he noticed the name change.

“And then when I actually saw it this past weekend I was just like, ‘Wow, I can’t believe they would actually let this not be found whenever they did the proof read,’ ” he said.

Thankfully, the South Paulding High School freshman’s name was changed in just one of the three appearances he makes in the yearbook.

School officials say there was in fact a faculty advisor who reviewed the pages before the final prints were made. They have yet to find out who’s responsible for writing “freak” next to Dylan’s name.

“He’s my son that I think the world of, and he is no way any kind of freak,” Dylan’s mother, Susan Powell, told Fox News.

“He has the biggest heart of any 16-year-old child I know,” she continued.

Dylan’s school has since apologized and has proposed issuing a sticker to all yearbooks to be placed over the alteration.

Mrs. Powell believes that all 900 yearbooks should be confiscated and destroyed.

“My son has to go to school and face all these kids that have seen this in the yearbook and I don’t know what that’s going to be like for him,” she said.

But Dylan says he plans to ignore the joke and move forward.

“I’m just going to act like it never happened. If anyone says something to me, I’m going to ignore it,” he said.
