FILE - A man wears a hat with President Donald Trump’s campaign slogan in 2016 in Montgomery, Ala.

Someone assembling the yearbook at an Adams County high school wiped the MAGA slogan from students’ hats.

Two students at Littlestown High School wore caps with “Trump: Make America Great Again” across the front during spirit week in October, reports FOX43.

A photo of the pair made it into the yearbook but the political slogans had been digitally removed.

“I just think that whoever did this doesn’t like Trump,” Jeremy Gebhart, 16, told FOX43.

“Everybody has First Amendment rights, freedom of speech and they are allowed to think what they want and say what they want but they aren’t allowed to take that away from other people,” he added.

“I was infuriated because he wears that hat because he supports our president,” Lorriane Gebhart, Jermey’s mother, told FOX43.

School officials told FOX43 an investigation is underway.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.
