Fisher suspends cheerleading activities amid investigation into video
Pittsford, N.Y. – St. John Fisher College has indefinitely suspended cheerleading activities after it says a video surfaced purportedly showed members of the team using discriminatory language.
The video appears to show members of a cheerleading team singing along with a popular rap song that contains the language.
“As a campus community, we will not support acts or behaviors that are not consistent with the values espoused in our mission statement and in the Fisher Creed,” a statement released by the college Friday read.
The college has launched an investigation into the matter and will follow an internal disciplinary process.
