MSA won't cancel ‘American Sniper’ screening

A March 3 letter to the editor asked DSA to not show the film, and that “an official, public apology and explanation be issued by all parties involved in approving the screening of American Sniper on Mizzou's campus.”

The Missouri Students Association is still hosting a public viewing of "American Sniper," despite receiving “numerous letters from students asking for the film to be cancelled,” according to a press release dated Friday, March 13.

MSA’s decision to show "American Sniper" was challenged publicly via a letter to the editor published by The Maneater on March 3.

The letter, which was written by an MU student, implored MSA to not show the film, and that “an official, public apology and explanation be issued by all parties involved in approving the screening of American Sniper on Mizzou's campus.”

The student’s chief complaint was that the film would create an “even more hostile environment” for Arabs, Muslims, South Asians and people of color at MU.
