CAPE CORAL, Fla. (CBS Tampa) – An offensive drinking game is causing concern in a South Florida community…and it may involve high schoolers.
The game is a form of beer pong with an anti-Semitic bent…”Jews vs. Nazis” trades cups formed into a triangle shape for a Star of David and a swastika.
More than 1600 people retweeted a post by @HSConfessional with a picture of the game that claims it’s played at Cape Coral High School parties, reports WFTX-TV.
After seeing the image for the first time, Rabbi Yitzchok Minkowicz of the Chabad Lubavitch of Southwest Florida said he would not be surprised if high school students are playing the game.
“As a rabbi, I like to look at the world as a beautiful place,” he told the station. “So, my first assumption is let’s assume it’s just children that are immature with no ill intent, not trying to be malice.”
The school district urged parents to better monitor their children’s online activity while noting that the photo of the cups could have been taken anywhere.
