Stanford Students Want Classmate Expelled After Violent, Racist, and Sexist Posts on Social Media

Thousands of Stanford students were calling for the expulsion of a classmate over a series of racist comments and violent posts on social media.

On Monday Stanford University President Marc Tessier-Lavigne called student Chaze Vinci’s posts “ugly” and disturbing” in a message he sent campuswide.

But while the message said the president would “address what has occurred” and that there would be “actions to ensure the safety of our community,” it fell short of mentioning disciplinary actions.

The university’s response and Vinci’s social media posts have sparked an online change.org petition to have him expelled.

“For me, if honestly, if they don’t expel him I don’t feel safe going to school,” said Stanford University sophomore Jordan McElroy. “It is me or him, it is him or us, and I’m leaning to consider another school for my undergraduate education.”

Vinci is accused of posting on Twitter and Instagram pictures and videos, many of which are now deleted, of his belief that women should serve men. On Monday he posted a picture of former Stanford student Brock Turner who was convicted of sexually assaulting another student with the caption, “A woman always gets what’s coming to her.”

Vinci also photoshopped a Black student’s face onto a picture to appear as if she had been beheaded. Another picture showed a professor with red marks drawn on him next to a guillotine.
