Would you have a problem with a coworker donning a red “Make America Great Again” hat every day?
The controversial chapeau has stirred up trouble at Calgary’s Mount Royal University (MRU).
A video making the rounds on social media shows an exchange between a male and female student. Matt Linder’s hat, a nod to one of Donald Trump’s most famous campaign slogans, didn’t sit well with his female colleague (Facebook user ZoE SlusaR has since claimed to be the woman in question).
In the video, the female student argues that the hat promotes a hateful beliefs that include bigotry, racism, and anti-gay messaging. She even threatens to take the issue directly to MRU’s president, David Docherty.
SlusaR told Global News here that “I do want to state that I stand by my belief that every space, but especially university spaces, should be made to make everyone feel SAFE. We need to seriously change our culture. We need to equally support and express movements and gestures of inclusive acceptance.”
