In the article “ASU fraternity throws racist MLK party,” the fraternity Tau Kappa Epsilon of Arizona State University was referenced. The investigation statement released on Jan. 24 concluded the party was not an official fraternity event and was off campus. Only 16 of the 125 members were involved (the ASU Interfraternity Council guidelines for an official fraternity event is 30 people).
Only one watermelon cup was at the event and was brought by a party attendee who was not a member of TKE. According to the investigation statement, not all of the photos were from the night of the MLK party. The chapter officers who were at the party have resigned from their positions.
The Beta-XI chapter of Tau Kappa Epsilon has been placed on probation.
