Top British university LSE apologises after sending ‘racist’ Kung Fu Panda email to students

One of Britain’s top universities has landed itself in hot water after sending an email to its students calling them Kung-Fu Pandas.

London School of Economics wrote to all students who had successfully gained a place on undergraduate courses a confirmation email entitled ‘Dear Kung-Fu, Panda’.

The email continued: ‘This is to certify that Aa-Kung Fu, Panda Tiger Test Test has firmly accepted an unconditional offer of admission to the London School of

Economics and Political Science for the full-time, three-year programme of undergraduate study.’

Unfortunately for the university, nearly 70 per cent of their students come from overseas and a third of those are from Asia.
