A high school in Mississippi is facing backlash after initially deciding to name two Black students as valedictorian and salutatorian, then later reneging and extending the honor to two white students.

A screenshot posted to Twitter shows Ikeria Washington and Layla Temple were named as Valedictorian and Salutatorian at West Point High School. But in a statement published on Thursday, the school also added Dominic Borgioli and Emma Berry to the list.

The district's Facebook page appears to be deactivated. 

Kierra Marcia, who identifies herself as a West Point High School alumni, was among the first to condemn the school on social media. 

"So my high school had a black valedictorian and salutatorian AND THEY WERE FEMALES and now since a white person was mad about it. They decide to call the girls back and let them know that it will now be two valedictorians and salutatorians. This is wrong!," Marcia tweeted.
