Students were removed from a US election party at Australia's prestigious University of Sydney on Wednesday for chanting "grab her by the pussy".
Freelance journalist Jess Hill was at the event, and tweeted about the altercation. Others echoed Hill's claims.
The University of Sydney acted quickly to remove the men, citing a breach of the university's code of conduct.
But many tweeted their disappointment and anger with the university.
The University of Sydney's United State's Studies Centre, who hosted the event, said in a tweet Wednesday afternoon that security was taking a "no tolerance approach to inappropriate or offensive language".
