Here’s another perfect example of why you should be careful of what you post on social media. Six seniors at an Arizona high school have reportedly been suspended after disgustingly spelling out the ‘n-word’ on their t-shirts…and shockingly posing for a photo!
This is SERIOUSLY no laughing matter. Six high school seniors are facing the consequences for carelessly posting an offensive photo on social media. People are understandably outraged by these ladies spelling out the “n-word” with their spirit day t-shirts, and are calling for major punishment.
Okay, here’s how this all went down. A whole group of students in the senior class at Desert Vista High School had dressed up for the yearbook, each wearing a black shirt with gold lettering to spell out “Best*You’ve*Ever*Seen*Class*Of*2016.” Apparently thinking it would be funny (although it was SO not), six ladies wearing shirts with N I * * E and R on it stood next to each other for a photo….and then posted it online.
It’s been reported that the ladies have been suspended for five days, but many are calling for expulsion, and a Change.org petition already has thousand of signatures supporting the cause. “It’s unacceptable for any racial slur any racial slur to be used, regardless of intent,” the district Superintendent said. “We need to understand that words matter.”
And the school’s principal, Dr. Christine Barela, is just as outraged. “We want to let you know that we share your outrage and disappointment over the actions of a handful of our students today,” she said. “We want to make it crystal clear that those actions are unacceptable and will not be tolerated at Desert Vista. Those actions do not represent who we are as a campus. We can assure you we will discipline those students in accordance with district policy and our student handbook. While we don’t discuss individual discipline, we can tell you that in addition, the obvious need for sensitivity training will be addressed.”
HollywoodLifers, do you think further action should be taken against these girls? Or is a suspension enough?
