A Teen is in Hot water after a racist prom proposal goes viral

FLORIDA- A Florida teen has apologized after a photo of him holding up a racist poster he used to ask a girl out for prom went viral.

Noah Crowley’s prom proposal sign read, “If I was black, I’d be picking cotton, but I’m white so I’m picking u 4 prom.”

The 18 year old girlfriend took a photo of the sign and posted it on her Snapchat and added two heart emojis to the photo.

The picture sparked outrage:

Crowley, a pupil at Riverview High School in Sarasota said in a statement, “Neither the school district nor Riverview High School condones or supports the message conveyed in the post.”

The teen has since apologised for the post and Sarasota County School District Communications Director Tracey Beeker told NBC News, the teen “made an error in judgment.
