On February 2, 2021 Queen’s Hillel, the Jewish cultural club Queen’s University in Kingston, Ontario, posted on Facebook:

“It has come to our attention that a short time ago, a Zoom lecture was hacked by an anonymous source who displayed a number of disturbing images, including swastikas. We are supporting several Jewish students who were in attendance, and will be communicating with our partners in the university administration to ensure a thorough investigation is undertaken. We stand in solidarity with students from other marginalized communities who were also impacted by the horrific imagery and messaging.”

Queen’s Journal reported that a guest lecture by Dr. Kathryn Lofton of Yale University, called “The Present Life of Blasphemy: Kanye West in American Popular Culture,” was hacked with violent images including swastikas.
