Gettysburg College postponed an event for students called “Tired of white cis men?” after receiving backlash.
The event was scheduled for Nov. 12, according to fliers and was supposed to be hosted by the Gender and Sexuality Resource Center, reportedly as part of a senior Peace and Justice project.
Those in attendance were encouraged to “Come paint & write about” their frustrations with white “comfortable in skin” men. Pictures of the fliers quickly went viral on social media platforms, claiming anti-white racism.
According to Fox News, the event did not go forward.
In a statement to the Washington Examiner, a spokeswoman for Gettysburg College said the school did not endorse the initiative.
“The flyer was made for a student project and was never endorsed by the College or by Peace and Justice Studies. The faculty leaders of Peace and Justice Studies have asked the student to reflect on their objectives and restructure their project accordingly. The event is no longer taking place as scheduled or initially constructed, and the flyers have been removed. The faculty advisors have also directed the student to our Freedom of Expression Philosophy and the guidelines for posting flyers advertising events on campus,” the statement read.
