Collier leaders react to homophobic, anti-semitic social media online video

Neighborhood and religious leaders have responded to an anti-Semitic and anti-LGBTQ video shared on a Collier County student’s social media. 

The video, which was shared on Snapchat about two weeks ago, includes homophobic slurs, swastikas and references to Adolf Hitler. If not deleted by the consumer, Snapchat stories — the place the online video was posted — routinely delete right after 24 several hours. 

Associates from Temple Shalom, the Naples United Church of Christ, the Holocaust museum & Cohen Training Heart of SWFL, Naples Delight, PFLAG of Naples and the Boxcar Basis co-signed a letter submitted to the Naples Day-to-day Information in response.

“A community middle college pupil shared a surprising and disturbing movie terrorizing all those who are LGBTQ and celebrating the legacy of Hitler,” the letter reads in element. “We owe it to those people who made the top sacrifice for our flexibility, as very well as to our potential, to tackle these problems now.”
