A Syracuse University fraternity has been permanently expelled after posting two offensive videos that its members deemed satire, the New York school announced Saturday.
The fraternity has been permanently expelled from campus for the racist, homophobic, and anti-semitic video that got the chapter suspended last week.
Maldonado states that the pupils were removed from course "out of an abundance of warning" and that substitute course and research arrangements have been created for them. The students, whom the school will not identify because of federal privacy law, are banned from classes during the disciplinary process.
In their own statement, Theta Tau added: "The young man playing the part of this character nor the young man being roasted do not hold any of the frightful views espoused" in it.
The decision was made out of "an abundance of caution and ongoing concern for our campus community", the safety official added.More news: Gowtham, Archer combine to hand MI another final-over loss

In an interview with The D.O. on Saturday, Syverud said he met with student leaders on Friday to discuss Theta Tau.
Syverud said in a statement on Sunday that there are videos other than the two that have already been released as well.
Amid ongoing investigations, the fraternity chapter insist that the video was meant to be "satirical" and that they were deliberately acting like an intolerant person for the objective of the "sketch".
He warned that more students could be "implicated in the coming days".
Most notable was at the University of Oklahoma when SAE brothers chanted that they would rather see black men lynched than initiate them as brothers.
