Patrick Henry High School in San Diego, USA which named a lesbian couple prom king and queen last weekend has been targeted by angry traditionalists.
Rebecca Arellano and Haileigh Adams, who won the title, received a warm reception from students and teachers at the school.
The school has described the abuse as ‘disturbing’ due to the fact that the main offenders are adults, although they have not commented on the details of the abuse.
Bill Kowba, San Diego school superintendent said that these people are: “demonstrating a lack of tolerance and are presenting such a negative role model for children with their hateful comments.
He said the abuse is disrupting the running of the school and added that: “if these calls and emails were from students, they would face disciplinary measures.”
