LEBANON, Ore. (AP) – A group of high school students in Oregon allegedly wore blackface to a gathering last weekend, sparking outrage.

KEZI reports that Lebanon High School Principal Craig Swanson told students and staff that what he called a racist incident over the weekend is being investigated.

The Eugene TV station said the teens showed up in blackface to a haunted barn fundraiser.

Rep. Diego Hernandez, a Portland Democrat in the state House of Representatives, said on Facebook that the incident was racist and malicious because a hashtag used when the teens posted a photo of themselves had racist language.

Lebanon is a town of around 15,000 residents 70 miles south of Portland.
