A group of cowboy hat-clad high school students turned their backs and displayed a Donald Trump sign as the starting roster for a predominantly black basketball team was announced before a game in Missouri.
The pregame prank at Warrensburg High School occurred as the home team prepared for tipoff against the visiting Center High School Yellowjackets on Monday evening.
A Facebook video, viewed over 630,000 times by Thursday morning, shows a group of at least two dozen students with their backs turned to the court. Some of the students are wearing camo overalls and cowboy hats, and a Trump/Pence campaign sign can be seen held up among them.
“Let it be known how RACIST Warrensburg High School students are,” a caption read to the video, recorded by an attendee. “I’m appalled by the nonsense I’ve just witnessed with my own two eyes…If this was the Yellowjackets house, nothing but RESPECT would’ve been giving to these cowards.”
Warrensburg superintendent Scott Patrick condemned the Trump-tinged theatrics.
