A Massachusetts high school teacher and cheerleading coach was busted giving a ‘White Power’ salute in a Snapchat video, NECN reports.
Stephanie Cuevas of Lynn English High School was busted after a former football coach noticed the video.
The video ended up being uploaded to Facebook where some defended Cuevas because “she’s married to a Hispanic man.”
Cuevas later said she apologized and that she was “making fun of myself in the video because that’s my personality!”
She then repeated the offensive statement with a twist.
“And for the record, I’m white power, black power, Mexican power, and human race power period,” she said.
Parents of Lynn Chargers youth football players are now responding to the video of team board member and secretary Stephanie Cuevas, holding up her fist and saying "white power." More details on # NBC10Boston at 11pm. pic.twitter.com/FnmboixBfL
