Six Arizona HS students at Desert Vista High School decided to re-arrange the letters of a slogan spelled out on t-shirts to offend their fellow classmates, teachers, administrators, local congress person, and pretty much everyone else who sees the story.

A different photo on Instagram shows 36 girls lined up wearing the same style of shirts that read "BEST*YOU'VE*EVER*SEEN*CLASS*OF*2016."
The photos went viral on Twitter and Facebook by Friday afternoon, where many people, including parents of Desert Vista students, called the photo racist and asked for the students to be suspended or expelled.
