A student from Pickerington Central High School in Ohio is seen in a viral video pumping a shot gun and asking his friends if they are “ready to go (N-word) hunting.” The teen has been identified as Scott Constantino since the Snapchat video went viral Monday.
The Columbus Dispatch reports that the video was uploaded during class. David Ball, a school official, told the paper, “We dealt with it quickly and as we saw appropriate,” Ball said. “We don’t take these things lightly.”
This incident is reminiscent of an earlier racial video from Modesto, California, where a white teen put a noose around his head and sent the Snapchat video to friends that eventually got to a Black teen.
