The Marine Corps is looking into a Marine’s recently deactivated Twitter account, which contained racist, Nazi-supporting images and messages.
Lance Cpl. Mason Meade, an infantry assault-man with 1st Battalion, 3rd Marines in Hawaii, is being investigated by the Marine Corps for the Twitter account “@Jacobite_Edward,” according to a statement released by the Marine Corps.
Screenshots from his account show he allegedly posted a photo of himself with a “black face” as well as messages and photos praising the Nazi party during WWII.
One photo on his account featured explosives laid out on a table in the shape of a swastika with the message, “epic.”
“The Marine Corps takes every instance of misconduct seriously, whether on duty, off duty, or online. Any form of racism or discrimination undermines the core values of the Marine Corps and is not tolerated. NCIS is thoroughly investigating this situation and the command will address any misconduct at the appropriate judicial or administrative level. Due to the nature of the investigation, we are unable to provide additional details at this time. We are thankful for the individuals who brought this to our attention, said 1st Lt. David Mancilla, a spokesman for the 3rd Marine Expeditionary Force, according to Task and Purpose.
