CAPE CORAL , Fla., May 8 (UPI) -- A drinking game is causing some concerns in Cape Coral -- but it's not because high school students appear to be ingesting alcohol.

Social media posts supposedly made by students from Cape Coral High School have showed students playing "Jews vs Nazis" beer pong. In this version of the popular drinking game, the traditional nine-cup triangles players generally use are traded in for a swastika and the Star of David.

Fox 4 informed Rabbi Yitzchok Minkowicz of the Chabad Lubavitch of Southwest about the game.

"As a rabbi, I like to look at the world as a beautiful place," said Rabbi Minkowicz. "So, my first assumption is let's assume it's just children that are immature with no ill intent, not trying to be malice. Good is more powerful than evil and if we continue to make this world a good and better place, good will rise to the top,"

According to the station, more than 1,600 people retweeted a post with a picture of the game claiming that it's being played at Cape Coral High School parties.

It is certainly a topic on Twitter:




"Parental monitoring of social media needs to continue especially and through the high school years," a Lee County School District spokeswoman said in an email. "Of course, any use of a school name in a defamatory manner is disappointing."
