KEARNS, Utah (AP) — Two high students in a Salt Lake City suburb have been suspended from the football team for posting a video of somebody burning an LGBTQ pride flag.
The Deseret News reports that Granite School District spokesman Ben Horsley says discipline was taken against the Kearns High School students even though the flag wasn’t burned on school grounds because it could have a detrimental impact on the school environment.
A video posted on social media shows the flag burning and someone saying, “all gays die.”
School district officials became aware of the video Monday. Horsley says the district is determining if the students will face additional academic punishment.
The district plans to have former students who are LGBTQ speak to the students and the entire football team.
