EXCLUSIVE: Student says university imposed 'Soviet-style' punishment over his Instagram posts
- Fordham University student Austin Tong says he received a letter stating that Instagram posts he shared violated university policy.
- One of the posts in question was of the black former police captain killed amid nationwide riots.
- The other post showed Tong holding a rifle pointed the ground.
A rising senior at Fordham University has provided Campus Reform with letters he allegedly received from the school's dean of students notifying him that two of his posts shared on his personal social media violated the university's student conduct code and that he has been placed on probation as a result.
Austin Tong provided Campus Reform with two letters he said he received from Fordham University Dean of Students Keith Eldredge. The first letter, dated June 8, allegedly informed Tong that the university had launched an investigation to determine whether two of his Instagram posts violated university policy.
