Edinburgh University Students Accused of ‘Yellow-Face’ During Chinese New Year-Themed Party

Two students at Edinburgh University are being accused of wearing racist “yellow-face” makeup during a Chinese New Year-themed party last February.

The picture which has been circulating online features two Caucasian male students wearing chopsticks costumes, with Chinese characters printed on cardboard around their neck that reads: “hi,” “new year,” “suck my chopsticks,” and “I love hockey.” They also allegedly wore yellow face paint.
