Disturbing video was leaked displaying Theta Tau members being racist, anti-semitic, sexist and homophobic this ultimately would have this Fraternity suspended.
As of today, this Fraternity has been expelled for their actions and utter disrespect. According to VladTv, Syracuse University Chancellor Kent Syverud recently announced that the Theta Tau fraternity has been permanently expelled after their racist video. Some of the students may also face suspension and or expulsion for their behavior in the video.
Theta Tau released a full statement on what the video was supposed to be about.
“First and foremost, every single member of Theta Tau would like to apologize to everyone affected by the racist video (…) Anyone of color or of any marginalized group who has seen this video has every right to be angry and upset with the despicable contents of that video. Each semester our new members are given the opportunity to write and act out a skit, in order to roast the active brothers. This event was never intended to be centered around racism or hate. This year, one of these brothers is a conservative Republican, and the new members roasted him by playing the part of a racist conservative character. It was a satirical sketch of an uneducated, racist, homophobic, misogynist, sexist, ableist and intolerant person. The young man playing the part of this character nor the young man being roasted do not hold any of the horrible views espoused as a part of that sketch.”
The sketch went too far and was not entertaining or funny. Chancellor Syverud has taken the right steps, let’s see if we can turn things around sooner than later.
