Some students at Susquehanna University are questioning a decision to remove 11 members from the football and track and field times because of their participation in a "Harlem Shake" Internet video, WNEP 16 News reported. Many students around the country are filming videos in which they dance to a hip-hop song. The objection at Susquehanna was to simulated sexual acts during part of the video. The university said that the athletes' behavior was "disappointing," but added that they were given plans that, if completed, would allow them to return to their teams. Some students thought the university overreacted.
The video is below and does feature (clothed) simulated acts, so please view only if you are comfortable doing so.
