CLEMSON (AP) — The Clemson University chapter of Sigma Alpha Epsilon has suspended all fraternity activities after what the school called an inappropriate theme party organized by several members last weekend.
Multiple media outlets reported that most of the chapter’s officers have resigned after white students dressed as gang members at the “Cripmas party.”
The party sparked a widespread backlash on social media. Pictures on social media early Sunday showed Clemson students covering their faces with red and blue bandanas and wearing T-shirts with images of handcuffs and the late rapper Tupac Shakur.
Clemson President Jim Clements said the party raised concerns about the campus racial climate.
The school said any member of the fraternity who attended the party could be suspended, depending on the outcome of an internal investigation.
