After Coming Out, Teen Claims Covington Catholic High School Students Made His Life A Living Hell

A number of students have shared stories of discrimination they allege happened at the hands of Covington Catholic High School students following a viral confrontation between MAGA-hat-wearing students from the school and a Native American elder.

In a lengthy Twitter thread, Mac Duckworth claims after he came out as gay, he was harassed and threatened by Covington Catholic students.



He says an army of fake Twitter accounts were created to harass him online. He also claims an explicit image of him was printed and shared throughout the school and says his name was mentioned in morning announcements for the school’s “prayer board.”

“I’m tired of being afraid to go certain places because of cov cath. I’m tired of being depressed and treated unfairly. I’m tired of it all.”

“Idk why people are shocked by these Cov Cath kids,” wrote another Twitter user in a since-deleted post. I remember senior year they chanted “Caramel” at me during a basketball game senior year. This ain’t nothing new 😴”




The same Catholic Diocese that oversees Covington Catholic High School in Kentucky also reportedly banned openly gay valedictorian Christian Bales’ speech at the High School of the Holy Cross last May.




President Trump weighed in on the controversy, tweeting his support Monday night for the students from Covington Catholic High School in Park Hills, Kentucky.

Fox News’ Laura Ingraham reported that the students will meet with President Trump at the White House “as early as tomorrow.”

A new video emerged on social media this week reportedly showing the Covington Catholic High School boys ‘harassing’ a group of young women shortly before the viral confrontation between a Native American elder and the students.

HuffPost reported on a new video from the confrontation showing a student, who has not yet been identified, shouting, “It’s not rape if you enjoy it.”
