Syracuse University's Theta Tau House_1524419033015

This Wednesday, April 18, 2018 photo shows the Theta Tau fraternity house in Syracuse, N.Y. Syracuse University Chancellor Kent Syverud announced the fraternity was suspended over videos with racist, sexist content. Syverud, described the video involving members of Theta Tau, a professional engineering fraternity, as racist, anti-Semitic, homophobic, sexist and hostile to people with disabilities. […]

 Syracuse University has expelled a fraternity over an offensive video that members say was intended as satire, but the controversy is continuing with the emergence of more video simulating a sexual assault of a disabled person.

Chancellor Kent Syverud calls the latest video clip “appalling and disgusting” in a statement Sunday on the New York school’s website. Syverud says he and other administrators will gather with students to discuss the matter Sunday evening.

Campus newspaper The Daily Orange posted the latest video Saturday, after Theta Tau’s expulsion. The clip appears to stem from the same event as the video of pantomimed sex acts and racist remarks that prompted the expulsion.

The fraternity apologized for the video Friday. It hasn’t immediately responded to emails Saturday and Sunday about subsequent developments.
