Florida high school students suspended, kicked off baseball team over 'Harlem Shake' video

Florida high school students suspended, kicked off baseball team over 'Harlem Shake' video | Alaska Special Interest News | Scoop.it

TITUSVILLE, Fla. - The Brevard County School District has suspended ten Titusville High School baseball players over their version of a viral video, "The Harlem Shake."

 

All ten students were suspended from school for at least two days after the school district said their video featured obscene gestures.

 

Eight of the students have been permanently kicked off the Titusville High School baseball team and two others received 2-week suspensions from the team.

 

In protest of the suspensions, other Titusville High students broke out into the dance in the school parking lot Friday morning.

 

School administrators said the ten suspended students are accused of wearing their baseball team uniforms and making obscene gestures while performing the dance at the school's baseball field, then posting the video online.

 

Students tell Local 6 the video was blown out of proportion and that they're outraged over what they call a "harmless Harlem Shake"...
