Long Island Students Caught Wearing Incredibly anti-Semitic Shirts While Drinking Underage

The shirts bear the word "Auschwitz," accompanied by a swastika and the message "hit the showers"

Students at Commack High School, in Long Island, really need to start making better choices. Recently two of them were photographed wearing anti-semitic t-shirts to a party.

The students wore bright red shirts with large black swastikas and the word “Auschwitz” written above the symbol. If that wasn’t inappropriate enough, the shirts also had “hit the showers” written beneath the Nazis symbol. From the look of them, it appears the students made the shirts themselves.

According to 1010 WIN’S Carol D’Auria, who first reported the photo on social media, the students were also participating in underaged drinking at the party they wore these incredibly offensive shirts to.

“I don’t know why they would ever post that, that never goes away. I don’t support what those kids did at all,” said one Commack High School senior, as quoted by CBC New York.

Although the two students wore the shirts off school property, and not during school hours, the two are facing serious disciplinary action by the school district given the seriousness of the incident.

These aren’t the first students from Commack High School to make headlines either. Back in September, five students caused an uproar when they wore t-shirts spelling out “Rape?” while on the school’s athletic field. We’re not sure what’s going on with the teens of Commack, but let’s all hope they get their act together. Fast.
