An Arizona high school told football fans who are also fans of Donald Trump, and America for that matter, to keep their opinions to themselves.
Officials handling the Twitter account for Corona del Sol High School, in Tempe, sent out a tweet on Thursday barring “anything offensive” from being worn at Friday’s game against Marcos de Niza High School, according to Breitbart.
When asked by one Twitter user what was considered offensive, the school responded that offensive items included anything portraying USA, American flags or Donald Trump.
“Anything perceived to be offensive/racist: green, USA, flags, Trump, etc. It’s not the clothing, but the intent behind it,” said the tweet.
“The Tribe tweeted out that the theme for the game would be ‘USA,’ and students should wear red, white and blue. Administration recognized that this theme had negative connotations,” according to the Corona student newspaper in an article that has since been deleted, Breitbart reported.
“This is not something that can be denied—past games, even as far back as over eight years ago, have showcased themes and chants that appeared racist or offensive toward Marcos [school]. The theme was changed to ‘Orange Out’ after the administration decided it was best to avoid any possible offensive connotations the theme would have,” the paper’s editorial board wrote.
Despite the staff’s attempt to wipe this tweet from history, screenshots and opinions abounded on social media.
