VIDEO: Students sign fake petition to ban 'Hurricane' mascot at U. Miami
- Campus Reform's Cabot Phillips traveled to the University of Miami to ask students if they support banning the school's mascot, the hurricanes.
- Multiple students supported the idea, with one citing the impact it could have on people with PTSD.
In recent years, a growing number of universities have faced pressure to change their mascots due to concerns over cultural appropriation and student sensitivity.
Whether it’s the state of Maine banning Native American mascots or students at George Washington calling for an end to the ‘Colonials’ mascot, there seems to be a new mascot facing scrutiny every week. But what about schools with mascots named after inanimate objects or weather occurrences? Surely, no one would support banning one of those mascots.
