According to Central Michigan University, the whole USA is feeling deeply distressed by the above prank Valentine’s Day card.
I’m sure you’re going to need to go under a doctor’s care after looking at the thing. Thus, I apologize for exposing you to such horrific trauma.
Central Michigan University is investigating two Valentine’s Day cards that were given to students, reportedly by a member of the school’s College Republicans group. The shocking anti-Semitic card read, “my love 4 u burns like 6,000 jews,” with a photo of Adolf Hitler and a lollipop attached.
The College Republicans issued a statement distancing themselves from the card, but acknowledged that it was circulated at their Valentine’s Day party on Wednesday.
“At tonight’s College Republican meeting, we had a Valentine’s Day party, in which each member decorated a bag and other members placed valentines inside of others’ bags,” the statement reads. “Unfortunately, a very inappropriate card was placed into a bag without other members’ knowledge. A bag was then given away to students sitting in Anspach [Hall], once again without members’ knowledge of its contents. The College Republicans as an organization did not distribute this valentine. We in no way condone this type of rhetoric or anti-Semitism. We apologize for any offense, and want students to know that we do not tolerate this sort of behavior.”
Metro reports the exaggerated response by administrators to a prank:
In a statement, CMU President George Ross said: ‘The grossly offensive action of one individual, a nonstudent, has deeply distressed our campus community and others across the nation.
‘With heavy hearts and great embarrassment, we apologize. To those of Jewish descent, rest assured that we stand with you and vow to continue the effort to educate others.’
He says he jokes on CMU.
She appreciated her card.
