Covington Catholic High School in Kentucky was forced to close on Tuesday due to security concerns after a group of students became the center of controversy following their interaction with a Native American elder near the Lincoln Memorial in Washington D.C. over the weekend.
When the video first went viral, the teens were excoriated by people online and accused of harassing and taunting Nathan Phillips, a Native American Vietnam veteran, while he was chanting and drumming. However, that narrative fell apart when other videos showed a group of Hebrew Israelites harassing and taunting the students before Phillips walked over to the group.
Following the incident, Nick Sandmann, the teen who was seen staring Phillips down as he played the drum inches from the teen's face, received death threats and many called for the students to be identified, shamed, and assaulted.
