Chancellor Kent Syverud issued a campuswide email condemning their actions, calling the language used "deeply harmful" and in direct contrast to the university's values.

After an investigation determined that the fraternity was indeed involved in producing the offensive videos, the University's Office of Student Rights and Responsibilities suspended the group, halting all activities.

"The video isn't surprising - it's a manifestation of microaggressions, rumors, whispers and outright acts of hatred marginalized students encounter in their time at SU", the Daily Orange editorial also said.

An extremely disturbing video has emerged from Syracuse University's Theta Tau fraternity, which has started a firestorm of controversy on campus. The chancellor said the videos were turned over to the school's Department of Public Safety for possible disciplinary or legal action.

Students note that these problems, although perhaps more prominent in Greek organizations, are not confined to them. However, campus protests put pressure on the Syracuse administration to exercise transparency.

Students protesting Wednesday night eventually made a decision to forego demands to see the video when concerns about the nature of the "relationship violence, racism and sexism" would likely be too disturbing for some, it was reported.

Tonight it was reported students had carried signs and chanted, "Where's the video?"

Charity Luster, vice president of the Syracuse chapter of the National Society of Black Engineers, told the crowd in the chapel, "I hope this event does not just spark a conversation on one video but that it sparks a conversation around how people of color and underrepresented people are treated on this campus".

The disturbing videos have sparked intense campus protests, as almost 100 students marched through campus on Wednesday chanting with signs in hand.
