COVINGTON, Ga. - Students at Eastside High School are under fire after a social media post went viral showing discriminatory and racial remarks and actions. 

According to videos shared on social media, a male student can be seen escorting a female student with hands behind her back. He is heard saying, "This is what happens when you cross the border illegally." The female student is then placed behind a gate and the first male student states, "Justice is served." A second male student then appears on screen and states, "Remember, *explicit removed* the Mexicans."

The Covington News has edited the video to remove student faces and explicit wording.


Sherri Davis, NCSS director of public relations, said the students involved have been disciplined.

"Yesterday we were made aware of an inappropriate post on social media made by students at Eastside High School," Davis told The Covington News. "The post included a video with offensive content that will not be tolerated. We are disappointed that these students engaged in this inappropriate behavior.  The students involved have been disciplined according to the student code of conduct."
