January 27, 2021

Black Caucus members were attacked with slurs and hate speech via a “Zoom Bombing.” During their virtual Involvement Fair, 51 unwanted users “ambushed” the Black Caucus Zoom room and filled the chat with anti-semitic and white supremacist language, while several users screamed into their microphones, played loud music or exposed themselves sexually. Additionally, Black Caucus members said the users used racist and homophobic slurs. The University condemned the incident and launched an investigation for which University police partnered with multiple officials including the FBI.
