    HATE HOAX: Native American Activist Approached Chanting Covington Catholic Teens, Got In Their Face

    The viral Twitter posts claiming a group of Covington Catholic teenagers aggressively “surrounded” a Native American man on Friday and “mocked,” “harassed” and “threatened” him is officially the biggest hate hoax of 2019.

    An out-of-context video showing one teenager standing still and smiling (with other students around him singing a school chant) while Native American activist Nathan Phillips bangs a drum and chants in his face went viral on Twitter on Saturday, quickly amassing over 5 million views.

    The story was picked up by hundreds of news outlets — without a hint of skepticism — who portrayed the kids as evil racists.

    The school themselves — before investigating– issued a statement condemning their own students and saying they may be expelled.

    Phillips told the Washington Post on Saturday that the student in the MAGA hat “blocked” his way and “wouldn’t allow” him “to retreat.”
