Footage of California students hitting a Donald Trump piñata sparks controversy, investigation

A California school district has launched an inquiry into footage that showed students and staff members at an Orange County high school hitting a piñata designed to look like President TrumpCBS Los Angeles reports.

Footage of the incident — which took place at Laguna Hills High School, in the Saddleback Valley school district — went viral after being leaked on YouTube. According to the YouTube posting, the “piñata party” took place during a Spanish class, though that has not been confirmed.

The incident has spurred online outrage from conservatives and some parents, which in turn prompted the school district to investigate further. Though officials declined to name those involved or detail potential repercussions, they did say the district didn’t “condone” what happened.

“This activity was not condoned, or approved, by the district, nor Laguna Hills High School,” said district spokesperson Mark Perez. “Personnel matters are confidential, and therefore, it is our policy to not comment on situations involving employees.”

A Feb. 23 tweet posted by someone identified as an Orange County student indicated that teachers had been suspended, however, and defended the event.
