An Arizona Jewish teen's birthday party in Paradise Valley came to an abrupt halt when two teenage attendees decorated their cupcake with a swastika symbol, reported KPNX.
In the original Facebook post, the girls told the Jewish teen's mom they did it to “be funny,” and all of the girls are still friends.
Carlos Galindo-Elvira, the director of the Anti-Defamation League in Arizona, said parents need to teach their children that certain symbols, like a swastika, are representations of hate.
"When you joke with symbols like the swastika you begin to normalize them and make it very casual within our society,” Galindo Elvira told 12 News.
