Two Syracuse City School District employees were placed on leave after a picture of them wearing “No Lives Matter” shirts went viral on social media, Syracuse.com reported Saturday.
The shirts also featured the horror movie characters Jason Voorhees, from the movie “Friday the 13th,” and Michael Myers from “Halloween,” according to Syracuse.com. The human resources department at the school district is conducting an investigation.
“We are aware of the recent post on social media. The two employees have been placed on administrative leave pending an investigation by our Human Resources Department,” a district statement to CNY Central said, according to CNY Central. “We believe Black Lives Matter in the Syracuse City School District. The ‘costumes’ are racist, insulting and offensive and not consistent with our core beliefs and values.”
