Duke Fraternity Suspended After Throwing Asian-Themed Party (Video)

'Asia Prime'

DURHAM (WTVD) -- The Duke University chapter of the Kappa Sigma fraternity has been suspended by its parent organization following a party that some have called racist.

Wilson Mitchell, the national executive director of Kappa Sigma, told ABC11 Wednesday all activities and events have been put on hold while the national organization determines the status of the Eta Prime chapter.

The move came the same day an Asian student group held a protest on the Duke campus over the party. It has also filed a formal complaint.

An invitation sent out for the event February 1 included the title "Kappa Sigma Asia Prime," and used phrases like "Herro Nice Duke Peopre!!" and an image depicting a caricature of North Korea's dictator with the caption "You had me at herro."
