Around 700 people gathered at Newport Harbor High School to address the controversy surrounding photos of students from different Orange County high schools posing in front of red plastic cups lined up like a swastika, and raising their arms in a Nazi salute. While some stressed that the students were doing it as part of a joke, others said that making fun of a mass genocide was no laughing matter. A parent of one the teenagers in the photos said his son was being threatened at school because of the controversy. Elizabeth Espinosa reports from Newport Beach for the KTLA 5 News on March 4, 2019.
