Student Threatens to Behead Trump in High School Yearbook
A student in Minnesota threatened to behead President Trump in her high school yearbook, adding “I do not like him,” reports a local CBS news station.
The Brainerd High School devoted an entire page of its high school yearbook to the President, asking students to express their opinions on the new administration.
One sophomore wrote, “I would like to behead him. I do not like him.”
An image of the yearbook comment has gone viral on social media, with local residents calling for the yearbooks to be recalled.
The school district released an official statement on the incident.
“The administration of Brainerd Public Schools has been notified that the 2016-2017 High School yearbook contains highly disrespectful statements from students about political figures, including the President of the United States,” the statement reads.
“The administration was previously unaware of the student’s statements in the yearbook. The district does not support or otherwise endorse any disrespectful or politically based statements that are in the yearbook and apologizes for the statements that were included,” it adds. “The administration is currently investigating how this occurred.”
This is the second incident in recent days where high school yearbooks have become politicized.
Last week, a yearbook in North Carolina was recalled because they contained quotes from the President that people found “controversial.”
