Students filmed chanting about violence and necrophilia have been criticised by two sponsors of the University of Nottingham’s fresher’s week.
Dominoes Pizza and Nottingham taxi firm DG taxis have both condemned the footage.
Their logos can been seen on the T-shirts of the students as they chant about having sex with a woman outside the Capital FM arena during fresher’s week.
Posted on YouTube on October 3 the video shows a mixed group of students involved in the chant which included the line: “Now she’s dead, but not forgotten, dig her up and **** her rotten.”
It is a well known halls chant sung by Cavendish Halls an accommodation block on the university campus where it is thought the students in the footage are from.
The chant, which has been branded misogynist by the students union, is believed to have been led by fresher’s week student reps who are given the job of helping first year student settle in during fresher’s week.
The students union is investigating whether representatives breached their code of conduct as all student reps signed a contract stating that they will not promote the singing of abusive, offensive, crude or intimidating chants and songs.
