A California teen is making headlines over controversy in her high school yearbook.

Bayan Zehlif, a Muslim, was given the name "Isis Phillips" in her school's yearbook. 

The name ISIS, of course, has become associated with the terror group based in Syria and Iraq. 
 
"I am extremely saddened, disgusted, hurt and embarrassed that the Los Osos High School yearbook was able to get away with this," she wrote on Facebook. "The school reached out to me and had the audacity to say that this was a typo. I beg to differ, let's be real."

The principal of Los Osos High School in Rancho Cucumonga called the label a "regrettable misprint" on Twitter.
