Three fans who wore KKK hoods at the North Dakota state hockey semi-final game on Friday will be disciplined by their principal, according to reports out this weekend.
The three fans were from Red River High School, and they sparked wild controversy when they decided to wear Klu Klux Klan hoods to the game. Many have expressed outrage at their thoughtless actions and they have since been labeled "idiots" and "ignorant" by online posters.
Since the controversial incident the Red River High School principal has released a statement saying that all three students would be dealt with and would face "appropriate action."
According to various media reports, the three students donned the KKK hoods at the game, but received such backlash from the fans around them that they took them off again after just about a minute. However, the damage had been done and they now face punishment from their school authorities.
The game where the controversial incident took place was at the North Dakota High School state hockey semi-final tournament between the Red River High School, Grand Forks, and Davies High School, Fargo, at the Ralph Engelstad Arena.
The three Red River High School students were dressed in all white - like the rest of their school's student fans. However, when Red River scored their first goal the three students got out their KKK hoods and put them on to celebrate.
The incident was caught on camera and in photographs, meaning news about their inappropriate actions spread quickly across the Internet, resulting in a firestorm of comment and rebukes at them.
The parents of all three students were also notified of the incident.
