Watch: Crazy Fight Breaks Out Over White High School Trump Supporter's IG Post

Watch: Crazy Fight Breaks Out Over White High School Trump Supporter's IG Post

And the threatening debate that followed.

Published 3 weeks ago

A Woodside High School school student was physically attacked at school for supporting Donald Trump.

Sophomore Jade Armenio told ABC 7 that was she approached by another student who accused her of being racist and then physically assaulted her. 

"This girl comes up to me and she said, 'Do you hate Mexicans?' and I was like, 'no,' and she said, 'You support Trump. You hate Mexicans.'" 

Jade was then beaten by the girl. 

  1. A bystander captured the moment the fight occurred.

    Jade believes the incident occurred because of an Instagram post she made on election night. 

    When Donald Trump was projected the winner, Jade took a screenshot of CNN’s announcement. Armenio says her friend, @slothy_loppy, commented, “Hell yeah, F Mexicans.”

    Jade then responded to his comment, “One of the few things we can agree on slothy_ loppy."

  2. When the video was posted to Twitter, things became scary when other trump supporters threatened to retaliate with more violence.
  3. Although Jade believes the attack occurred because of her response to the comment about Mexicans, her mother says Jade is not racist.

    “She’s got Mexican friends,” her mother, Gina Armenio, told KRON 4. “She’s got Black friends. We have them over. We do not have any issues. We’re not racist and have never been racist and nobody, nobody should beat somebody up because of that. So if that’s her reasoning, I’m appalled.”

  4. Since Trump's victory over Hillary Clinton, violent attacks have occurred on both sides.
  5. The school district’s superintendent, James Lianides, issued an official statement:

    "Woodside staff responded immediately to the incident. The incident was investigated in conjunction with law enforcement and appropriate disciplinary action has been taken."
