Catholic school basketball crowd taunts Latino rivals – Trump gets blamed!

Some of the parents considered it good natured ribbing between the two teams while others bashed the display as racist.

“It was jovial,” George Galanos a parent of an Andrean student told ABC 7. “It was a lot of fun. There was hugging going on between the teams.”

“I understand they’re kids,” Ashley Howard who has a cousin who goes to Bishop Noll, told ABC 7. “You expect them to make mistakes. Maybe they didn’t know how far to push the envelope because they are rival schools, but that’s what the administration is for and that’s where the administration is supposed to step in and say, ‘hey kids, that’s not ok.'”

But it was the statement released by Bishop Knoll that seemed to take aim at Trump, as if he is responsible for what fans of a team do.

“The accusations being leveled against Andrean are being taken very seriously by Bishop Noll Institute,” the statement read. “This is a teachable moment for everyone about responsible speech, social media, and sportsmanship. Perhaps last night’s incident was an unfortunate byproduct of irresponsible speech in today’s political arena.”

Tonight at the Bishop Noll vs. Andrean (both private catholic high schools) basketball game, the Andrean “super fan”…

Nice way to shift blame off of themselves.

Social media users were also quick to cast blame on the Republican presidential front-runner.

Others thought the Trump blaming was ridiculous.
