A group of students at Pacifica High School in Garden Grove, California were filmed giving a Nazi salute and singing a Nazi song during an awards ceremony in 2018.
The video was originally uploaded to Instagram by a student athlete, who also posted lyrics to the song.
A spokesperson for the Garden Grove Unified School district said the school district was made aware of the Nazi video back in March, but refused to go into details, notes the Daily Beast.
While the district cannot comment on student discipline, the school did address this situation with all involved students and families.
The Daily Beast notes that some parentsand students believe the video controversy was swept under the rug by the school district:
However, one parent of a student at Pacifica, who requested anonymity out of fear of retaliation from school officials, told The Daily Beast they were concerned educators never addressed the wider community about the video, especially since it had circulated among students.
A current student likewise said the incident was never spoken about by the administration and was not sure whether the students involved were suspended.
