Harvard’s doors are no longer open to at least 10 students previously accepted into its class of 2021. These students were part of a Facebook group chat that was at one point called “Harvard memes for horny bourgeois teens.” The Harvard Crimson obtained screen shots of the chat, which included horrific jokes about race, sexual assault, and other sensitive topics. There was one sexualized joke about child abuse, and another joke referred to hanging a Mexican child as “piñata time.”

Originally, about 100 admitted students had formed a group just to share memes. Then, a few members started an “R-rated” version of the group with selective standards for who could join. “They were like, ‘Oh, you have to send a meme to the original group to prove that you could get into the new one,'” incoming freshman Cassandra Luca told The Crimson. “This was a just-because-we-got-into-Harvard-doesn’t-mean-we-can’t-have-fun kind of thing.”

After word got out about the group, admissions office administrators emailed its members, telling them they weren’t invited to the school’s annual event for admitted students and asking them to share what they’d posted.
