A group of Texas high school students gave the Nazi salute and shouted “Heil Hitler” and “Heil Trump” while their class photo was being taken.
The Cypress Ranch High School senior class on Tuesday lined up outside to have their picture taken — one photo was supposed to be serious while the other was allowed to be funny.
Following the first picture, about 70 students put their hands in the air, performing what appears to be the offensive salute, KPRC reported.
Other students who weren’t involved took photos from afar and began posting them online and even shared them with the local media.
In an email to KPRC, one student who witnessed the incident but wished to remain anonymous called it “pretty terrifying.”
“Most people may think it was just kids joking around but in the current political climate and the fact these kids are seniors in high school, it’s beyond unacceptable,” the student said.
The student added students were yelling things like “Heil Hitler” and “Heil Trump.”
An email from the school principal called the incident a “poor choice” on the part of the students.
“This is extremely disappointing as this is not an accurate representation of our student body,” he said in the email. “We are currently conducting an investigation and those implicated will be punished according to the Student Code of Conduct.”
