Syracuse to assess future of kiss cam

first_img Published on September 21, 2015 at 6:41 pm Contact Connor: [email protected] | @connorgrossman The kiss cam segment on the Carrier Dome scoreboard did not make its usual appearance during the Syracuse-Central Michigan game on Saturday following a letter to the editor sent to Syracuse.com on Friday.Syracuse Athletics confirmed that the university is “taking time” to assess the concerns presented in the letter to Syracuse.com, and offered no timetable for the kiss cam’s return.The author of the letter said they attended the SU-Wake Forest matchup on Sept. 12, and highlighted two separate instances in which two people who were “clearly” not a couple were pressured by fellow fans to kiss while the video board featured them. In both instances the author says the female participant visibly shook her head before kissing.“The instances I witnessed at the game encourage and condone sexual assault and a sense of male entitlement, at best,” the author said in the letter to Syracuse.com. “And they are an actual instance of assault, at worst.” Comments AdvertisementThis is placeholder text Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more
