(Newser) – Internet photos of NYC Prep star Sebastian Oppenheim and a buddy joking with a black-tape Hitler mustache and swastikas have landed the 16-year-old on the New York Post's Page Six. Sebastian's father said his partly-Jewish son was mimicking the movie "Inglourious Basterds" and didn't mean to convey any hateful sentiment.
