A University of California San Diego bathroom was defaced with multiple swastikas on Sunday.
According to university officials, the swastikas were created with fecal matter, the San Diego Union-Tribute reported.
They were discovered Sunday night in Kaleidoscope, a small dormitory hall in Sixth College.
“We are angered and horrified by this and reaffirm that hate has absolutely no place at UC San Diego,” Chancellor Pradeep Khosla said in a Tuesday statement. “We condemn all forms of racism, intolerance and bigotry.
Khosla added that the antisemitic vandalism was “simply not acceptable in our community.”
“This disturbing incident is being actively investigated by campus police, and it is our intention that those involved will be held accountable,” Khosla said.
According to campus Jewish group Triton Jewish Leaders, a similar act took place last year when the campus library was vandalized with swastikas.
“This symbol promotes Nazi propaganda and represents the horrific slaughter of over six million Jews,” the group told the news outlet. “Additionally, antisemitic rhetoric has been normalized around the country and on our campus.”
According to a UCSD official, campus police have opened an investigation.
