They have a few cover versions on youtube. I think the school band one was removed.

I live in Madison, which is right outside of Huntsville, and I cannot wait for this meme to go away.

This is outrageous. Someone tried to rape this woman, and they made a song about it. WTF? To top it off, they are making fun of them for being uneducated. I am aghast that some people behave in this manner.

First of all, the song isn't about the rape per say.  It's about Antoine Dodson and his hilarious reaction on the news to the attempted rape of his sister.  If you can't see the comedy in this, then you need to lighten up... a lot.

Second of all, what does it have to do with education?  Antoine didn't say anything factually incorrect.  He just (hilariously) fearmongered that "they rapin' everybody up in here" probably because he was worked up from the whole incident.  The auto-tune the news guys didn't even make fun of the guy.  They just put his words to music.  AND they are sharing the profits with the Dodson family.  And Antoine Dodson is selling t-shirts and all that.  So clearly he doesn't feel like he's being made fun of for being "uneducated" like you say.

Third of all, what does it say about the state of our popular music industry when a satirical song like this makes its way to the top 100?  I love the auto-tune the news guys and all, but that's just a little sad for music in general.

I think your reaction to this is more objectionable than the whole damn incident.  Learn to have a sense of humor.

So let's get this straight.  You're complaining about your precious time being wasted.  But not only did you click the article, you also spent extra time submitting a comment.  Forgive me if I feel that's just a tad bit ridiculous/hypocritical/retarded.
