“These are high school kids,” #JohnMaloney told the parents at the graduation ceremony held at the #RedlandsBowl. “We don’t care about what is happening in Congress, but we care about a of couple cheerleaders dressing up. I admire those girls for their strength and courage.” The occasion of the photoshoot was last year’s “Gangsta Day” team-building exercise that made some school administrators uncomfortable.
Members of the cheer squad posed wearing doo-rags, flashing gang signs, with some sporting tattoos across their stomachs while others made themselves appear to be pregnant.
The #cheerleading program was subsequently suspended following the controversy — with coaches and instructors either being reassigned or terminated — but that didn’t stop the principal from heaping praise on the cheerleaders at the graduation ceremony to the annoyance of some in the crowd.
