LOS ANGELES (CBSLA) — An Orange County school district is investigating a viral video of what appears to be a student and a staff member at Laguna Hills High School hitting a piñata of a man with President Donald Trump’s face.
The video — which was posted last week to multiple social media sites — was shot a couple of weeks ago and showed a golden-haired, tie-wearing Trump effigy being hit.READ MORE: Victorville House Fire Kills 12-Year-Old Boy, Injures 3 Young Children

The district would not say if a staff member was reprimanded or if students were involved.
“This activity was not condoned, or approved, by the district, nor Laguna Hills High School”, said district spokesperson Mark Perez. “Personnel matters are confidential, and therefore, it is our policy to not comment on situations involving employees.”MORE NEWS: Chipotle To Increase Wages To Average Of $15 Per Hour By Late June
