A video dating back to November 2018 shows a group of students from Pacifica High School in Orange County singing a Nazi marching song with their arms raised in a Nazi salute.
It is the second incident involving students in California imitating Nazi symbols and gestures to come to light in 2019.
Earlier this year a photo of students at Newport Harbour High School raising their arms in a Nazi salute over a swastika formed by red plastic cups went viral.
An expert on extremist groups said that the Nazi song playing in the background of the video is quite obscure, raising questions as to how the students heard about it in the first place.
A video that sparked outrage on social media shows a group of students from Pacifica High School in Orange County, California singing a Nazi marching song with their arms raised in a Nazi salute.
The Garden Grove Unified School District, in which Pacifica High resides, issued a statement on Monday confirming that the incident occurred at an “off-campus student athletics banquet in an empty and unsupervised room at the facility” in November 2018, the Orange County Register reported.
Footage of the incident was recorded and shared on Snapchat, the school district said in a statement.
