A Mexican newspaper recently took a group of American students to task for chanting President Donald Trump’s “Build That Wall” slogan during a spring break vacation getaway.
An editorial in the Yucatán Times slammed the American kids for “xenophobia and discrimination against Mexicans within their own country,” for chanting the pro-Trump chant, Mediatie.com reported.
The op-ed published in English and entitled, “Spring Breakers chanting ‘Build That Wall’ in Cancun is unacceptable,” was based on claims reported on a Facebook post by the husband of a Mexican citizen.
“During a family show on the high seas, young American spring breakers began to sing the controversial ‘Build That Wall’ chant, which shocked Mexican national tourists and workers,” the paper explained.
“This is just one of the many blameworthy behaviors that young spring breakers have shown recently in Cancun and that are described as acts of xenophobia and discrimination against Mexicans within their own country, which is (or should be) totally unacceptable,” the Times added.
The paper quoted the Facebook post which described the chanting as having been observed in Cancun, Mexico, where, “a flock of Americans (maybe under the influence of alcohol, or maybe not), began to sing the infamous ‘Build that wall’ chant louder and louder.”
The Times also insisted that this is not the only times such behavior has been witnessed citing “the growing number of complaints from tourism sector workers” about American spring breakers chanting “build that wall.”
