Coronavirus-themed party under investigation by university

ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) -- The state University at Albany is investigating whether an off-campus coronavirus-themed party violated the college's student code of conduct.

A group of Asian-American students at the university condemned the party hosted by students last weekend, saying it was insensitive and racist.

Video of the party was briefly posted on the Barstool Albany Instagram account Sunday night.

WGY News Radio said the video showed a bucket of Corona beers and a person wearing a surgical mask with the caption, "Coronavirus isn't gonna stop anyone from partying."

University officials said the party's theme was hurtful.
