Harvard rescinds Parkland student Kyle Kashuv’s acceptance

Kyle Kashuv won’t be going to Harvard after all. The Parkland, Florida student posted on his Twitter account this morning that the ivy league school has decided to rescind his acceptance after old texts and comment surfaced that were racist in nature.

Kashuv apologized for the remarks, but apparently that wasn’t sufficient for the school.

“Harvard rescinded my acceptance. Three months after being admitted to Harvard Class of 2023, Harvard has decided to rescind my admission over texts and comments made nearly two years ago, months prior to the shooting. I have some thoughts. Here’s what happened,” Kashuv tweeted.

He says the time after the comments broke was difficult for him and that former political opponents began advocating to Harvard that his admission be withdrawn.

When he asked if he could talk with them face to face, his meeting request was denied.

Kashuv says he’s still figuring out what to do next.

Earlier this year Kashuv stepped down as Turning Point USA Director of High School Outreach. He’s been an outspoken advocate for the Second Amendment despite being a victim of the Parkland shooting.
