High-School Student Bullied and Spat on for Wearing a MAGA Hat
Braxton McElhaney, a sophomore at a Utah high-school, wore a MAGA hat, showing his support for President Donald Trump. Cellphone video was taken showing the incident. McElhaney said about the incident that “The two girls, they kept antagonizing me, calling me a racist, saying I look r—–ed, and calling me a white supremist, white privilege, because I was wearing my Trump hat.” The two students ripped off his hat, threw an American flag mask he was wearing into a dumpster, and spit on his face. Braxton’s mother said that “It brings me to tears every time I watch it, and I can’t believe that people who are on that side and try to push love and acceptance and toleration of other people, and then they are so against somebody who is just a patriot,” she said.
The Jordan School district released a statement saying that “Jordan School District does not tolerate or condone the type of behavior seen in this video. Our schools stand for respect and inclusion where all are free to learn and work in a safe, welcoming environment without judgment. This situation was immediately investigated with the support and involvement of law enforcement. Swift, appropriate disciplinary action was taken following district protocol.”
