Syracuse University has decided to suspend their “Kiss Cam” during sporting events after receiving complaints that it could lead to sexual assault.

“It’s a part of attending a ballgame that’s as familiar as coordinated chants or overpriced stadium food: During a break in the action, Jumbotron cameras focus on couples in the crowd, imploring them to kiss before thousands of eager spectators. Sometimes it’s sweet. Sometimes it’s funny. Sometimes it’s awkward.
It’s oftentimes even downright presidential. The Obamas once smooched on a basketball game “kiss cam,” as the segments are commonly known. Jimmy Carter and wife Rosalyn did it at a baseball game just last week, while George H.W. Bush and wife Barbara puckered up at an NFL game last year.
You likely won’t see any such moments at Syracuse football games any time soon, though. The university suspended the kiss cam from the Carrier Dome, where it plays home games, after fan complaints that the tradition promotes “male entitlement” and unwanted sexual advances.”
