Zavirusivshuyusya video was the cause of criticism of adolescents in society, including from celebrities.
Students criticized for racism – including Hollywood celebrities
The case during the meetings in Washington was the reason for a new racial conflict in society. Native Americans have repeatedly accused Trump of racist statements. The president has also been criticized for “extreme” rhetoric against Mexicans, immigrants and Muslims. Therefore, some felt that Trump’s words and actions inspired teens to do this.

This is appalling. The ignorance. The gall. The disrespect. It’s shameful. And sadly on brand. When something like this isnt even surprising, it’s evidence to our place in the cycle of recreating our darker chapters. That Native American man showed incredible strength and dignity https://t.co/Im4KLw3sV7

The school apologized for the students, but they deny the charges.
Covington Catholic School and the local diocese publicly apologized to Phillips for disrespectful behavior of students and announced the start of an internal investigation. “We will take appropriate [deed] actions up to the exception,” the school management noted.

Nick Sandmann, who was in the midst of criticism, explained to journalists that he would not in any way want to provoke Phillips and only tried to defuse the situation. “I smiled because I wanted to let him know that I was not aggressive,” he noted.
The teenager’s statement says that teenagers began to sing in response to insults with the permission of the teachers. The student also stressed that he “does not intend to tolerate” charges of racism, because of which his relatives allegedly received death threats.
