A Brooklyn school principal is under investigation for allegedly smacking an 11-year old in the mouth.

Greta Hawkins is principal at PS 90 in Coney Island.

Last month, Hawkins allegedly took away the student's cell phone.

She's now accused of striking the fifth grader, who reportedly suffered a fat lip.

The boy says he blacked out and can't remember the incident.

Hawkins was previously disciplined for racial and religious remarks she made at a staff meeting.
