Students from an Atlanta private school are facing disciplinary action after a photo posted online shows them playing a game of “Jews vs. Nazis” beer pong at an off-campus house party.
Channel 2 Action News confirmed the photo shows students of the Lovett School playing the game earlier this month.
The picture clearly shows cups filled with beer in the shape of a Jewish star on one side of the table and a swastika on the other.
Five students were suspended and the student who set up the game and took the photo was expelled after a jewish supremacist rabbi named Peter Berg alerted the elite prep school’s head master of the “incident”.
“The fact that someone could even conceive of such a game, and then play it and think it’s funny is beyond words,” Berg said.
Lovett school leaders would not speak to us on camera but a spokesperson sent an email to media saying in part:
“Character education is at the heart of all we do at Lovett, and we deeply appreciate the individuals and organizations across our community who are helping us to continue to learn and grow from this very troubling incident.”
The Berg sees the Lovett School beer pong case as an opportunity.
“We as a community, as a country, have to get our hands and wrap our hands around the problem of hate speech in general, to understand how horrifying that image is to Jewish people,” Berg said.
