A truck drove around Harvard displaying names and photos of students it said were involved with the letter blaming Israel for Hamas’ attacks
On Sunday, dozens of Harvard student groups cosigned a letter blaming Israel for the brutal Hamas attacks over the weekend. The letter’s release sparked a backlash against the student groups that now apparently includes a doxing effort involving a truck.
The Harvard Crimson reported that a truck was spotted being driven through campus on Wednesday featuring a digital billboard claiming to show faces and names of students associated with the letter. Images on social media appear to show that the students’ names and images appeared alongside the title “Harvard’s leading antisemites.”
The president of the conservative watchdog Accuracy in Media has claimed responsibility for the stunt, writing on X that his team was “removing the names of students from groups that withdrew but are also adding new names every hour.”
Accuracy in Media used the truck to advertise a link to its website and a petition calling for Harvard to expel the students whose organizations cosigned the letter. Its website also displayed the full names of students it said were associated with the letter.
