Several white Minnesota high school students are learning the hard way that wearing KKK hoods to a school function is a really bad idea. Several students decided to wear KKK hoods as a uniform to a school dodge-ball tournament and are facing suspension for their actions, CBSNews reports.

One student was captured in an image captioned, "Grand Wizard," which is the name of the designated leader of a Ku Klux Klan chapter.

Authorities at the Mound Westonka High School in the city of Minnetrista are investigating the incident. “During the investigation, it was determined that actions taken by some students, both on and off campus, were in violation of district policy, and appropriate action was taken in accordance with district policy," the school wrote in a statement, according to CBSNews.com

Some showed their support of the teens though the social media hashtag "#unsuspendteamdoot," according to Rawstory.com.

Authorities are still investigating the activities of other students possibly related to the incident.
