They created a messaging group where students could share memes about popular culture — a growing trend on the Internet among students at elite colleges.
Some of the group’s members decided to form an offshoot group in which students could share obscene, “R-rated” memes, a student told the Crimson.
The founders of the messaging group demanded that students post provocative memes in the main group chat to gain admittance to the smaller group.
In an email to The Washington Post Sunday night, Rachael Dane, a Harvard spokeswoman, said “we do not comment publicly on the admissions status of individual applicants.” But according to the Harvard Crimson article, written by Harvard student Hannah Natanson, representatives from the admissions office emailed the implicated students asking them to reveal every picture they sent in the group.
“The Admissions Committee was disappointed to learn that several students in a private group chat for the Class of 2021 were sending messages that contained offensive messages and graphics,” read a copy of the Admissions Office’s email obtained by the Crimson.
In 2015 they launched Affair Hub Live, which expanded their service offerings from purely online to phone.
