Parents of suspended UMass students: Punishment for off-campus maskless photo ‘complete overkill'

The parents of three University of Massachusetts-Amherst students who were suspended for allegedly violating the school's COVID-19 health policy told "Fox & Friends" the "draconian" punishment was "complete overkill."  

The decision reportedly was made after school administrators got hold of a photo of the trio maskless at a party off-campus.

The students, all women, were first removed from campus and then were cut off their remote-lessons access.

"They went to a gathering, off-campus on a Saturday. They took a picture and another student screenshotted that picture on Instagram and sent it to the administration," one of the parents told host Brian Kilmeade on Tuesday. "So that picture virtually got them kicked out of school."

"It's been heartbreaking watching my well-adjusted daughter be emotionally distraught," she added. "It's been heartbreaking for my whole family."
