Rutgers University has launched an investigation into “racist and bigoted Zoom-bombings” that have targeted university video calls.
The most recent incidents took place during the Black History Month programs hosted by the Paul Robeson Cultural Center and the Center for Social Justice Education & LGBTQ Communities, according to Rutgers Chancellor Christopher Molley.
Molley released a statement Friday in which he said, “I do want us all to acknowledge the harm done to Black and LGBTQ members of our community, and affirm their pain. Marginalized communities are too often forced to bear such hatred and navigate in spite of it, and moments like this cut and wound deeply. I strongly condemn these horrific acts.”
He then went on to announce that the Rutgers University Police Department (RUPD), the Office of Information Technology (OIT), and the Division of Student Affairs will be investigating these attacks.
Molley added that “it appears that these attacks are not localized, and likely part of a larger coordinated international activity,” and will “[require] the involvement of various jurisdictions and technology companies.”
The investigation is currently underway.
