MEXICO CITY – A girl's cheer-dance team in Mexico has drawn criticism for a routine in which they displayed flags with swastikas, dressed in pseudo-military outfits and one girl tossed a Nazi salute to the crowd.
The performance by about two dozen girls aged 10 to 16 came at a cheer-dance competition in the western city of Guadalajara at the end of May.
The girls wore red armbands, camouflage dance outfits and carried red flags as they strutted in marching-style formations.
A video of the performance drew condemnation when it began to circulate Friday on social media sites.
Event organizer Enrique Casas said the routines were the individual choice of the 192 teams that participated.
But Casas said that organizers may put safeguards on the next competition "to avoid hurting people's feelings."
