After posting obscene memes to Facebook, students lose their acceptance at Harvard

Harvard College rescinded admissions offers to at least ten prospective members of the Class of 2021 after the students traded sexually explicit memes and messages that sometimes targeted minority groups in a private Facebook group chat.

A handful of admitted students formed the messaging group—titled, at one point, “Harvard memes for horny bourgeois teens”—on Facebook in late December, according to two incoming freshmen.

Ugh, one would think that students would know that nothing is private online by now! Even if the students believed it was private, what they posted isn’t acceptable in any format.
