Updated:NORWIN, Pa. —
Norwin School District is conducting its own investigation after a picture surfaced of a disc jockey holding girls’ underwear at their homecoming dance over the weekend.
A parent contacted Channel 11 News about the issue and said girls were tossing their underwear at the DJ during the dance inside the school gym.
The parent said she found the photo, which shows DJ Eric Wenning holding a couple of bras, on her daughter’s Facebook page.
Wenning told Channel 11 News that the picture was taken after the dance, posted on his own personal Facebook page and wasn’t meant for students. He said he, like the chaperones, was appalled.
“It was kind of in a moment of bad judgment. I did take a picture with a shocked look on my face holding the bras in my hand and posted it on my private Facebook page,” Wenning said. “I really apologize for making that bad judgement call and I do not condone any of this behavior.”
A Norwin High School sophomore said she was at the dance, and the DJ did not encourage the girls’ actions.
“They were taking off their bras. I didn’t see anyone completely undressing. They were just throwing them. I’m not really sure where they came from, either,” the student said. “He wasn’t encouraging it at all.”
One parent emailed Channel 11 News and disagreed.
“The DJ encouraged the behavior and I think the school is sweeping this under the rug,” the parent said.
Norwin School District officials said they are looking into the matter, but would not say how many students were involved or the possible penalties.
