So while one girl was getting accepted to Yale thanks to pizza, a bunch of idiots were losing their chance to go to Harvard all due to memes. Let us explain.
According to The Harvard Crimson, at least 10 students have cost themselves admission to the prestigious university after it was discovered that the students had created a space on the internet to share super offensive memes — some of these memes included poking fun at sexual assault, deaths of children and even the Holocaust. So yeah, Harvard gave them the boot.

A handful of admitted students formed the messaging group—titled, at one point, “Harvard memes for horny bourgeois teens”—on Facebook in late December, according to two incoming freshmen.
In the group, students sent each other memes and other images mocking sexual assault, the Holocaust, and the deaths of children, according to screenshots of the chat obtained by The Crimson. Some of the messages joked that abusing children was sexually arousing, while others had punchlines directed at specific ethnic or racial groups. One called the hypothetical hanging of a Mexican child “piñata time.”
After discovering the existence and contents of the chat, Harvard administrators revoked admissions offers to at least ten participants in mid-April, according to several members of the group. University officials have previously said that Harvard’s decision to rescind a student’s offer is final.
Holy hell, how dumb can you be? Sure, a lot of the people who get accepted into these fancy schools are usually pricks deep down, but this is on a whole other level. Good on Harvard to make sure these idiots didn’t step foot into their school.
Next time around just stick to the “Say No More” barber meme.
