ADAIR COUNTY, Ky. – Two high school students in Kentucky took Halloween to a whole new level.

The two girls in Adair County, about 120 miles south of Louisville, decided to dress up as Dylan Klebold and Eric Harris, the two teenagers who carried out the Columbine High School massacre in 1999.

The girls probably didn’t get the reaction they wanted.

After their photo went viral on Halloween, the girls were suspended for three days, according to CNN affiliate WLEX-TV. The photo showed the girls on the floor in the school’s library, WLEX reported, which mimicked the eerie photo of the two Columbine shooters after they killed themselves in the Columbine library.

Pamela Stephens, Adair County superintendent, said in a statement to CNN the county takes the situation very seriously.

“Our personnel are continuing to investigate the facts and circumstances surrounding this matter,” the statement read. “The suspension for the two students has been extended as we continue the investigation.”

The father of one of the girls told WLEX the duo acknowledges they made a mistake, but says the school blew the whole situation out of proportion. The father also told WLEX the girls have received death threats.
