We’ve recently received a lot of backlash for publishing a homophobic article in our latest issue. We will be issuing a formal apology on behalf of Outlook to the public, so I would just like to let you all know beforehand. If anyone asks, please re-direct them to me or to the readoutlook email account, and any AUB student is within their right to write a rebuttal to this piece. We will be reserving a spread in the next issue dedicated to the replies of this article. I would also like to apologize personally to any of you who were targeted because you are a part of article. The best we can do at this point is apologize, though the viewpoint remains the authors own. This next week will be hectic and please talk to me if you have any concerns.
Last note, and terrible timing, but we’re still on for international star wars day , and will be screening the event tonight at 7pm at CHSC rooftop. Those of you on the stand today, keep in mind what I have said above, and don’t let it discourage any of you from attending tonight.
Happy international Star Wars day, and, officially, May the Fourth be with you.
