Drone drops flyers with swastikas near Ariana Grande concert venue


Anti-media flyers, some which included swastikas, were reportedly dropped over a fundraising dinner at Sacramento State University and outside an Ariana Grande concert venue nearby. 

Sacramento State’s President Robert S. Nelsen issued a statement on Facebook denouncing the flyers and calling them “hate speech and propaganda,” but said it “did not stop the event, nor will it slow our march toward greater understanding and commitment to the rights and safety of our campus community.”

The State Hornet, Sacramento State’s student newspaper, shared photos of the flyers online. 

Additionally, photos shared on Twitter showed the same flyers dropped at Golden 1 Center where Ariana Grande was performing the same night. 

The flyers also promoted a Facebook page featuring anti-media views and videos of other similarr acts, including dropping leaflets on the State Capitol, according to the State Hornet.
