College student's Cosby costume brings wrath through social media
A University of Central Arkansas student was expelled and its Sigma Tau Gamma fraternity was suspended after one of its students appeared as comedian and accused rapist Bill Cosby.
Brock Denton, a fraternity brother and student at the school, posted a photograph of himself in blackface and wearing a multi-colored sweater taken at the fraternity's Halloween party on Friday, October 28. The photograph and story has gained widespread attention.
The student newspaper, The Echo, posted the photo but did not say specifically that was dressed as Cosby.
The newspaper also posted a message from the college president as well as Denton's apology.
Denton says he has received threats based on his public display of the photograph.
