WASHINGTON – Georgetown University students are slamming an online humor magazine for a satirical piece they say is racist and not funny.
The story in the Georgetown Heckler describes the official campus paper, The Hoya, holding a cross-burning on campus and refers to "dark, human-shaped pinatas."
The Heckler seems to be poking fun at troubles The Hoya ran into earlier this year when it published an April Fool's issue that students criticized as racist and sexist.
But Jheanelle Brown, president of the campus NAACP chapter, says seeing the Heckler article published online Saturday made her "physically sick."
Georgetown Vice President for Student Affairs Todd Olson is condemning the publication, saying it's not affiliated with the school.
