Black and LGBT Edinburgh University students attacked in Zoom meeting

The University of Edinburgh student union event on Sunday was interrupted by racist slurs, the chanting of homophobic slogans, and pornography.

About 50 people were given a link to join but it was not password protected. One guest speaker was reduced to tears.

The university said it regarded “any incident of discrimination as a serious matter”. Zoom said it was “deeply upset” and had begun an investigation.
