Offensive Facebook memes just cost 10 students their spots at Harvard

Share

The student publication says it had obtained screenshots of the said group, formed outside the official Harvard Class of 2021 Facebook group, that verify these incidents. However, they had started two new groups where they had posted obscene and upsetting posts which contained highly offensive content.

The Facebook messaging group was at one point titled "Harvard memes for horny bourgeois teens". They joked that hanging a Mexican child should be called "pinata time".

But by mid-April, school officials had caught a whiff of the group and issued letters to the students involved, asking for proof of everything they had posted in there.

An earlier video released by cops showed Woods outside his auto and unsteady on his feet as police had him walk a straight line. At one point, Woods is unable to comply with the officer's orders when he is asked to close his eyes and tilt his head back.

The students used the unofficial group to share memes that mocked sex assault and the Holocaust, and made fun of racial and ethnic groups.

At least 10 hopeful would-be freshmen won't be attending the Harvard this fall, after the university found that the students traded sexually explicit and racist images in a private chat room.

Although the college spokesperson Rachel Dane maintains that the institution doesn't speak of the admission status of students publicly, the report collected testimonies of the students who were part of the dubious social media group.

One of those conditions includes "if an admitted student engages or has engaged in behavior that brings into question their honesty, maturity or moral character", a university spokeswoman said. The chat group ostensibly belonged to the Class of 2021, meaning its participants were all entering Harvard in the academic year that begins in 2017.

An email sent by the Harvard admissions office to the students whose acceptance offers were rescinded cited "offensive messages and graphics" that were shared by the group. It also described correspondence that Harvard officials had sent to members of the group.

Harvard University has revoked offers to at least 10 prospective students who apparently didn't think taking the mickey out of these serious issues would land them in trouble.
