Two laughing teens have sparked outrage for mocking the death of George Floyd in a photo and posting it on Snapchat, according to a report.
The pic shows one of the teens resting his knee on the neck of a second man who is sprawled out on the ground, according to The Sun.
They both appear to be laughing in the image, which is accompanied by a “police brutality” caption.
“Imagine being so bold as to post this on your Snapchat,” one source told The Sun after also seeing it shared on a university Facebook group.
“Everyone is rightly enraged by this … these people need to be named and shamed.”
The pair — along with the pal who took the image — are all “sick pranksters” aged 18 and 19 from Cardinal Hume Catholic School in Gateshead, one former classmate told the UK paper.
“I thought the guy who took the photo had his head screwed on a bit more but obviously not because he shared it on social media,” the insider said.
The sick image came to light after it was shared on a Facebook page for new students attending Warwick University.
A spokesperson for the university insisted no one involved in the photo was connected to the university.
“Nor would they be welcomed,” the spokesperson said. “Such behavior goes against the university’s principles which emphasize treating others with respect.”
