ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) - The state University at Albany is investigating whether an off-campus coronavirus-themed party violated the college's student code of conduct.
A group of Asian-American students at the university condemned the party hosted by students last weekend, saying it was insensitive and racist. Video of the party was briefly posted on the Barstool Albany Instagram account Sunday night.
WGY News Radio said the video showed a bucket of Corona beers and a person wearing a surgical mask with the caption, “Corona virus isn't gonna stop anyone from partying.” University officials said the party's theme was hurtful.
Campus officials released the following statement:
The theme of this party was distasteful and hurtful and is not representative of UAlbany or its nearly 18,000 students. Any allegation of conduct violations will be investigated and addressed through the University’s disciplinary process.
