Watch: Who is Kyle Kashuv and why was his Harvard admission rescinded?
The cost of having used racist and sexist language, even if it was years ago, is high, explains Trevor Noah.
Eighteen-year-old American pro-gun activist and survivor of 2018 Parkland school shooting Kyle Kashuv’s admission to Harvard University has been rescinded. The university took the decision after evidence of Kashuv’s using racist language on social media from two years ago surfaced.
Kashuv has made several television appearances since, explaining and defending his actions. Although he has apologised for his words and said that he is not the same person that he was when he sent those messages, Kashuv has also pointed fingers at Harvard by comparing their historical association with slavery from almost 400 years ago to his messages from two years ago.
