Various media figures and Twitter users called for them to be doxed, shamed, or otherwise punished, and school administrators said they would consider expulsion.
But the rest of the video—nearly two hours of additional footage showing what happened I m really bored 20 Covington 20 and after the encounter—adds important context that strongly contradicts the media's narrative. Far from engaging in racially I m really bored 20 Covington 20 harassment, the group of mostly white, MAGA-hat-wearing male teenagers remained relatively calm and restrained despite being subjected to incessant racist, homophobic, and bigoted verbal abuse by members of the bizarre religious sect Black Hebrew Israelites, who were lurking nearby.

It bears repeating that I m really bored 20 Covington 20 approached himnot the other way around. And that's all there is to it.
Phillips walked away after several minutes, the Black Hebrew Israelites continued to insult the crowd, and nothing else happened. You can judge for yourself.
Here is video footage of the full incident, from the perspective of the black nationalists. Phillips enters the picture around the 1: They call them crackers, faggots, and pedophiles.Seeking Somthing New And Exciting
