Australian Student Dresses As Hitler, Wins ‘Best Dressed’
An Australian school had to apologize after a student attended a school event in costume as Adolf Hitler – and was then named “best dressed” at the event. And if that weren’t bad enough, the tone-deaf boy was then praised for his “best dressed’ win in front of a group of Jewish exchange students from Bialik College in Melbourne. The principal confirmed the student asked “a respected staff member” for permission to dress up as the Nazi dictator and that she had said yes. While allowing to the boy to dress as Hitler at a school function was bad enough, naming him “best dressed” feels excessive. Faculty blamed the “busy” calendar for how his attire slipped by but have offered no excuses as to why the attire was then celebrated.
