The Daily Beast reports that a water polo team from a California high school sang Nazi songs during an awards ceremony.
The video was uploaded to Instagram by one of the athletes, who also posted lyrics to the song in his Instagram bio. After the video expired, the athlete removed the reference. He did not respond to requests for comment.
A spokesperson for the Garden Grove Unified School district where Pacifica High School resides said the school administrators first became aware of the incident and video four months later in March, but did not say if they disciplined anyone.

But I'm also told that facts don't care about my feelings. QED.
