Students demand censorship of 'Coronavirus' theme party...
[reason.com]

Some students at the State University of New York at Albany (SUNY-Albany) posted a video on Instagram that advertised a "coronavirus" themed party, complete with corona-beer-filled ice buckets and attendees in surgical masks. The video was subsequently deleted.

Tacky and insensitive? Sure. A reason for the administration to intervene? No.

Nevertheless, some other students have demanded that the university punish this "hate crime against Asian students and scholars." Since the coronavirus originated in Asia and has so far mostly affected Asian people, the party is presumed to spread negative stereotypes about Asian people.
