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: Kidnapping Suspect Livestreams Barricade, Standoff In Palmdale

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: Outrage Grows Over Racist Social Media Attack Targeting CBS San Francisco Reporter Betty Yu
