1/ THREAD: Harvard rescinded my acceptance.
Three months after being admitted to Harvard Class of 2023, Harvard has decided to rescind my admission over texts and comments made nearly two years ago, months prior to the shooting.
I have some thoughts. Here’s what happened.@KYLEKASHUV COMMENT
Harvard Pulls Pro-Gun Parkland Survivor Kyle Kashuv’s Admission Over Racial Slurs
On Monday, Kashuv complained that the university judged him too harshly and accused the school of having a “checkered past” of its own. “It’s about whether we live in a society in which forgiveness is possible or mistakes brand you as irredeemable, as Harvard has decided for me,” Kashuv tweeted.
The messages that cost him his Harvard admission came to light in May when a fellow Parkland student tweeted images of the racist messages Kashuv wrote while still a high-school student. In a shared Google Doc with classmates, Kashuv repeatedly wrote the word “n—er,” adding “im really good at typing n—er ok.” In another message, Kashuv called black student athletes “n—erjocks.”
The loss of his Harvard admission represents a new low for Kashuv, whose pro-gun stance had once earned him a White House meeting with President Trump, a string of Fox News appearances, and speaking roles at conservative conferences.
Many of Kashuv’s former allies abandoned him after the messages came to light. At the same time, far-right figures like anti-Muslim activist Laura Loomer—who view Kashuv as a member of the GOP establishment—led a campaign urging Harvard to revoke Kashuv’s admission.
On Monday, right-wing provocateur and Kashuv foe Jacob Wohl celebrated the revoked admission, calling Kashuv a “political charlatan” in a post on the messaging app Telegram.
Not every conservative pundit has abandoned Kashuv, though.
Ben Shapiro, the conservative personality who played a major role in promoting Kashuv’s career as a pro-gun activist, tweeted that Harvard’s decision set up an “insane, cruel standard.”
Regardless of what you think of @KyleKashuv — and for the record, I think he, like many other Parkland survivors, has handled the public limelight with grace and strength — Harvard’s auto-da-fe sets up an insane, cruel standard no one can possibly meet. https://t.co/zgL26OPaSZ— Ben Shapiro (@benshapiro) June 17, 2019
Harvard University has revoked the admission of conservative pundit and Parkland shooting survivor Kyle Kashuv over racial slurs he made in messages that surfaced online last month.
Kashuv, who rose to fame on the right as a vocally pro-gun survivor of the 2018 shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, was set to attend Harvard in 2020 after taking a gap-year off from school. But Kashuv announced Monday in a lengthy Twitter thread criticizing Harvard that the university pulled his admission in a letter citing concerns about “maturity and moral character,” an apparent reference to the racial slurs.
Kashuv said on Monday that he doesn’t know where he will go to college now, adding that he turned down “huge scholarships” at other schools in favor of the Ivy League titan.
On Monday, Harvard University rescinded their acceptance of Kyle Kashuv, a pro-Second Amendment activist who survived last year’s deadly shooting in Parkland, Florida, over racist comments he made in high school that emerged on social media in May.
“[The Admissions Committee] takes seriously the qualities of maturity and moral character. After careful consideration, the Committee voted to rescind your admission to Harvard,” the Ivy League school wrote in a letter to Kashuv that he shared on Twitter. “We are sorry about the circumstances that have led us to withdraw your admissions, and we wish you success in your future academic endeavors and beyond.”
