Arizona State University announced Thursday evening a fraternity was kicked off campus following a racist party the Greek organization held in conjunction with the national holiday honoring Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
Tau Kappa Epsilon was notified this week its recognition as a fraternity at the university was permanently revoked by ASU, spokeswoman Sharon Keeler said. TKE was suspended Monday for holding an “MLK Black Party” where attendees were encouraged to wear jerseys, drink from watermelon cups and guests posted photos on Instagram with the hashtags #blackoutformlk and #hood.
The party took place Sunday. After photos made their way to social media, the university suspended TKE on Monday while it began speaking with fraternity representatives.
