A Virginia school district said it was investigating an image posted on social media by a high school football player that repurposed a photo of Derek Chauvin, the former Minneapolis police officer charged with murdering George Floyd, kneeling on Mr. Floyd’s neck to celebrate his team’s recent victory.

The doctored image, which the student posted after his team won a game on Friday, shows the Cave Spring High School logo superimposed onto Mr. Chauvin’s face. The logo of the losing team, Hidden Valley High School, was edited onto Mr. Floyd’s face.

And that’s the story.
