A Woodside High sophomore said that after she posted on social media her support of Donald Trump for president, she was assaulted Nov. 9 at the school by another student who accused her of hating Mexicans.
The exchange began with the girl allegedly asking the sophomore, "Do you hate Mexicans?" the sophomore said in an interview with KGO-TV.
In reply, the sophomore said that she did not, but the attacker allegedly said, "You support Trump. You hate Mexicans."
The girl who assaulted her gave her a bloody nose, pulled her hair and pulled out her earrings, she said in the KGO report.
Teens were actively posting their political views on social media as the election results came in, the sophomore said, adding that she had posted her views on Instagram.
Woodside Principal Diane Burbank said "appropriate disciplinary action" has been taken with respect to the student who initiated the attack.
