Students at a liberal Ohio college are voicing outrage over the fried chicken, sushi, General Tso’s chicken and Vietnamese sandwiches served in the school cafeterias, saying the cheap knockoff dishes are “insensitive” and “culturally inappropriate.”

Students at Oberlin College — which happens to be the alma matter of ultra-liberal actress Lena Dunham — are writing to the school’s newspaper to complain about the meals and are demanding meetings with campus dining officials and the college president.

Among the complaints were a student’s claim that the General Tso’s chicken at one of the campus dining facilities was steamed instead of fried.

Prudence Hiu-Ying, a sophomore from China, told the Oberlin Review that the steamed chicken dish did not resemble the popular Chinese dish. She described it as “so weird that I didn’t ever try it.”
