An 18-year-old student at Glastonbury High School in Connecticut has been charged with two counts of third-degree computer crime after he allegedly hacked into his school computer database and added an Adolf Hitler quote into the school’s yearbook.

The quote was never caught by yearbook staff and appeared underneath a photo of a fellow classmate. The quotes were only discovered in May after some students had already received their copies, according to The Associated Press.

“It is a quite special secret pleasure how the people around us fail to realize what is really happening to them,” the quote read. The quote was attributed to George Floyd, a Black man who was killed in May 2020 by a Minneapolis police officer.

German dictator Hilter has used that saying to reinforce his power of propaganda during his time in power. According to investigators, the teen also added another quote into the yearbook, referencing the Boston Marathon bombers.

The unnamed teen was already barred from his graduation ceremony and is set to make a court appearance on Aug. 6.
