“Put the Panic back in Hispanic.”
A sign displayed at an Alabama high school football rally that read "Put the Panic back in Hispanic" has gone viral on social media, prompting the school superintendent to announce he is "following up on the matter."
A photo of the sign was posted to Instagram on Friday, with the caption: "Put the Panic back in Hispanic. #dontgetButthurt I'm honestly not gonna care if you do anyways so!! #sorryboutit" The Instagram post has since been deleted.

Jennifer Lopez Vazquez, a senior at Robertsdale, saw someone on Instagram share the photo with the sign and decided to screenshot and share it on her own Facebook page Saturday. As of Monday morning, her post had drawn more than 100 comments.
"This happened yesterday at our school pep rally," Vazquez wrote along with the screenshot. "They know it's Hispanic Month. That's very disrespectful in so my ways. But it's funny to think that our school thinks it ' OKAY ' this is Honestly what white trash looks like."
