On October 31, the actual Halloween day, Amy Gutmann, the UPenn President, hosted a party at her house. Here is a photo of us. I asked her if I can take another photo where Iâ€™m pointing my gun at her, but she did not allow it.
University of Pennsylvania: Statement by President Amy Gutmann
Each year, the president hosts a Halloween party for Penn students. More than 700 students attend. They all crowd around to have their picture taken with me in costume. This year, one student who had a toy gun in hand had his picture taken with me before it was obvious to me that he was dressed as a suicide bomber. He posted the photo on a website and it was picked up on several other websites.
The costume is clearly offensive and I was offended by it. As soon as I realized what his costume was, I refused to take any more pictures with him, as he requested. The student had the right to wear the costume just as I, and others, have a right to criticize his wearing of it.
A MORONIC answer from a MORON…….
The U Penn Board of Trustees should reprimand President Amy.
But, Flap bets they won’t………PC BS.
Good for her for not taking the John Kerry route and blaming “assorted right-wing nutjobs.”
But Myers makes an important point.
