Sad members of our soft American culture are officially running out of things by which to be offended. The latest straw-grasping attempt to express misplaced disdain for something completely harmless comes to us from Quinnipiac University.

A student “activist” single-handedly caused the postponement of a Kappa Alpha Theta philanthropy event because she deemed the display of maracas on a poster for a Latin-themed event to be culturally insensitive and “shameful.” Maracas. Fucking maracas.

The event aimed to raise money for children in foster care, according to a tipster who reached out to me with an explanation.


Didn’t know how else to get this to you, but this morning Quinnipiac’s Kappa Alpha Theta chapter had to postpone their philanthropy event, Queso for CASA which raised money to support kids in foster care. This postponing of events comes in the wake of a self-proclaimed student activist who believe that the event poster was offense because it contained images of maracas. The girl ran to Student Affairs and demanded action be taken. Theta is obviously pretty upset and the rest of the Greek community has been tweeting and sharing videos about what CASA is in hopes to inform everyone.

Below is her tweet getting all bent out of shape over it.

Well done, Gruber (no idea how to add those weird accent marks). Those greedy kids in foster care are too coddled anyway. They don’t need any more handouts. About time someone stepped out of the shadows to toughen these parent-less children up.


UPDATE: Apparently, this story is absolutely exploding on the Wigo app.

A Wigo representative I spoke to said this has been their most viral event ever, in the form of an outpouring of support for Kappa Alpha Theta, who intended to offend no one, but only wanted to raise money for children in need.
