After days of condemnation, stemming from an edited video of high school teens, wearing MAGA hats, supposedly harassing a Native American elder, new information has come out proving the teens did nothing wrong, and were in fact the ones being harassed.
…newer videos showed that the students were completely innocent. They were first taunted by a group of radical activists and the Native American protester approached them.
While most of the liberal media, and Hollywood elite, have been slow to admit their mistake, there are a few that have that have acknowledged they were wrong to jump to judgement about the teens, including actress Jaime Lee Curtis, and CNN anchor Jake Tapper. Tapper, tweeted the following.
Video footage strongly contradicts Native American veteran Nathan Phillips' claim that Covington Catholic High School boys harassed him. The media got this one completely wrong
While the teens will likely never get the apology they deserve, having the truth come out, is a victory in itself.
UPDATE: A lawyer for the Convington teens, that were falsely accused of antagonizing a Native American, has given the media an ultimatum to retract any false statements about the incident, or face legal action. Attorney, Robert Barnes, had the following to say.
Everybody now is on 48-hour notice so by Friday, everybody needs to retract and correct any false statements they have issued about these kids
