An Arizona mom that made waves for protesting high school students' punishment for a MAGA banner had a racist Snapchat video filmed in her home last year.

The Arizona Republic reported that Jennifer Farris, the mother of some students at Gilbert, AZ's Perry High School who claimed they were asked to remove MAGA gear, is tied to a 2018 viral video that featured teens celebrating the death of Martin Luther King, Jr. and using slurs.

Last year, a group of junior high students filmed themselves inside Farris' house singing along to a racist rap parody song celebrating King's death that includes the lyrics "f**k all n**gers." The video, reports noted, was filmed during the MLK Day school holiday.

The mother claimed she wasn't home and her children weren't involved when the video was recorded. She also said that although she doesn't approve of the message the kids were chanting, the incident was "portrayed unfairly."

"I do understand that it can be offensive," Farris told the Republic, "but that’s not the way it was intended."

The students were not punished for the video in spite of public outcry from parents in the community.

Farris' children's alleged punishment for holding a Trump banner and being asked to remove MAGA apparel has become a cause celebre for conservatives since last weekend after Farris filmed herself confronting Perry High School Principal Dan Serrano about the incident.

But as the report noted, school district officials said the MAGA gear-wearing students were punished due to their involvement in an altercation.

"The students were asked to put the banner away, although they were not required to change their attire," district officials told the Republic.
