College students ‘in tears’ over a banana peel in a tree because it didn’t make them feel ‘safe’


An off-campus Greek Life event held by leaders of Ole Miss last weekend was cancelled after many students became troubled by a banana peel, which was hanging from a campus tree.

According to The Daily Mississippian, many members of the community were “hurt, frightened, and upset by what occurred.”

Ole Miss Greek Life leaders cut their three-day leadership retreat to nearby Camp Hopewell short after black students discovered a banana peel dangling in a tree outside of one of the camp’s cabins.

The banana peel was later spotted by Alpha Kappa Alpha President, Makala McNeil, a leader from one of the campus’s historically black sororities.
