PALOS VERDES, Calif. (KABC) — Some people are outraged after a "promposal" sign appears to have a racist message.
A photo circulating on social media shows two teens, who reportedly attend Palos Verdes High School standing together and laughing while holding a sign.
The N-word appears to be highlighted in bold letters in the sign, which reads: "BiaNca You are racIst but I would Give anything for you to Go with mE to PRom."
A woman who tweeted that her daughter is a student at Palos Verdes asked people to call the school and "condemn this horrific sensibility #racism #ignorance."
Principal Allan Tyner released a statement following the backlash:
"At this time, I am asking all teachers and parents in our school community to join me in reminding our students that we live in a society that must respect diversity and tolerance."
This is a developing story and will be updated as more information becomes available.
