Harvard is in the wrong. And those snitches should be kicked out. A buddy of mine was admitted in Harvard but got denied due to his moms retarded ass. He was listening to some rap music and his mom told him to turn his shit down. Then she started talking shit and try to turn off the thing physically. So he got some scissors and told her to back the fuck off. The mom snitched on the cops. Cops came and recorded the event. Guidance counselor told Harvard. He got his admittance rescinded. His mom ruined his fucking life at the time. But it’s cool though they were rich already. He’s still doing well in life, he’s like a political advisor now for California. Cream always rises to the top.
Overreaction by Harvard. These are 17 year old kids being silly in what they thought was a private setting. With that said, if this had been made public and it was publicized that Harvard hadn’t done anything about it, the blowback to Harvard might have been way worse than this.
Harvard’s justification about shaping the leaders of tomorrow or whatever…Harvard puts out a ton of comedy writers. Pretty much every writer for the Simpsons went to Harvard. The Harvard Lampoon is a breeding ground for all sorts of comedic careers. And, guess what? Many of those people make horribly offensive material. Nearly all comedy offends someone. Yes, these memes were pretty out there, but they were also pretty damn funny.
The “Be warned, they are highly offensive” warning before posting the memes was laugh out loud funny. Wouldn’t want to give anyone PTSD. Anyway, definitely outrageous but would be far more offensive if it happened at a real school. This is like not cashing your lotto ticket before it expired.
