Judging by their faces, they thought it was absolutely hilarious.
Senior picture day at Desert Vista High School in Arizona meant kids would go for stunts and antics that would make their final year of high school memorable, and along with several other girls, these girls teamed up to wear shirts that would spell out “BEST *YOU’VE* EVER *SEEN* CLASS *OF* 2016,” which would make them the queens of social media once they posed for their photos. However, some of them chose a different viral route.
Six members of that group decided they would use their lettered shirts to form a different message: “Ni**er.” The photo has made its rounds all over the internet since it surfaced, leading the school to step in and release a statement. “The students will be disciplined in accordance with district policy and while we don’t discuss specific discipline I can tell you that will be addressing the obvious need for sensitivity training in this case,” says a school district official.
None of the girls involved or their parents have spoken to the media about the incident as yet, but for starters, maybe the curriculum at Desert Vista needs to be…adjusted.
