Folks are outraged over the disciplinary action of a group of Arizona teens that spelled a derogatory word on their shirts and posted it on social media.

A photo recently surfaced of six girls from Desert Vista High School spelling out “N-I-*-*-E-R” in gold letters across their black shirts. Apparently, the letters were taken from a bigger message that spelled out “BEST*YOU’VE*EVER*SEEN*CLASS*OF*2016.”

After several complaints, Jill Hanks, executive director of community relations for Tempe Union High School District, released a statement that read:

“We are absolutely aware and outraged by this behavior. The students will be disciplined in accordance with district policy and while we don’t discuss specific discipline I can tell you that will be addressing the obvious need for sensitivity training in this case.”

But it is now being reported that the consequence for the horrific act was a five-day suspension, a disciplinary action that social media users are incredibly upset with.

Many posted their anger on the school’s Facebook page and expressed that the girls should have been expelled.
