The students, one of whom was quoted as saying “We are in pain!” during the protest, were mocked and ridiculed by comedians Bill Maher and Larry Wilmore.
Maher said on his HBO show “Real Time” that he wanted to “dropkick these kids into a place where there is actual pain and suffering.”
“The Nightly Show with Larry Wilmore” also took aim at the sensitivity Emory students.
