Spring Breakers In Cancun Reportedly Chant ‘Build That Wall!’

A group of Americans on spring break in Mexico reportedly chanted “build that wall!” while aboard a “Pirate Ship” cruise in Cancun.

Mexican newspaper, The Yucatan Times, wrote an editorial piece on Friday criticizing the behavior of the tourists, calling their chant an act of “xenophobia and discrimination against Mexicans within their own country.”

The newspaper referenced a social media post by Anaximandro Amable, a man from Peru, who claimed to be aboard the ship to watch the pirate-themed entertainment show and witnessed the chant.

Totally tacky and ignorant college students. If you are going to spend your money in Mexico that is endorsing what their government does. I would never choose to go on vacation there as I do not support their drug cartel run government nor do I support the deluge of illegals that cross our borders every day. I don't care how cheap it is.

For spring break students, alcohol + cheap drugs + springtime pheromones can result in almost anything with the stamp of stupid all over it.

We should be better than that. You go to another country you show respect. You represent America, and acting that way gives the rest of us a bad name. Have your opinion, plan your trip accordingly, and don't make us all look like fools.
