Penn State Essentially Says “Our Bad”
Remember that “Worrisome Veteran” video that has generated so much controversy? The University finally released a statement regarding their P.R. snafu last night:
The university released a statement Thursday saying that the video wasn’t intended to stereotype veterans as worrisome students. It also says the video was cleared by “a number of focus groups that included veterans and no one indicated offense at the content.”
“Unfortunately, in our efforts to also highlight in this video the potential services that are available to veterans, the portrayal of the student as a veteran may be viewed by some as unfairly stereotyping members of this important constituency,” the statement reads. “Penn State sincerely regrets any misperception.”
