Ivy League snub: Harvard rescinds pro-gun Parkland activist’s acceptance

When he and his classmates descended on the Capitol shortly after the horrific attack on their Parkland high school, Kyle Kashuv stood out: He was one of the only teens who wasn’t pushing for stricter gun control.

Kashuv, who graduated from Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School earlier this summer, has been embraced by conservatives and the National Rifle Association in his rapid arc to fame since the Feb. 14, 2018 mass shooting that left 17 students and faculty dead and 17 other people injured at the Broward County school). Kashuv, who told us last year that his parents are from Israel, has also been castigated by those on the left for his conservative views and unwavering support of President Donald Trump.

The 18-year-old took to Twitter today to inform his more than 301,000 followers that Harvard University has rescinded its acceptance of him following reports of using racial slurs in a shared document several years ago.

Kashuv says he turned down other scholarship offers after he deciding to head to the Ivy League school.

“I’m exploring all options at the moment.”
