Harvard rescinds 10 acceptances over obscene posts: student paper

Harvard rescinds 10 acceptances over obscene posts: student paperHarvard University has revoked its acceptance of at least 10 applicants to its incoming freshman class after learning the group traded sexually explicit and sometimes racist images in a private online message group, the student newspaper reported. A university spokeswoman declined on Monday to comment on Sunday’s Harvard Crimson report, which cites multiple members of the incoming class, including one unnamed prospective who said his admission offer had been withdrawn. The messages, exchanged on a private Facebook group, at times joked about sexual assault, ethnic groups and the Holocaust, and referred to child abuse as sexually arousing.
