A freshman whose racist Snapchat post was condemned by students and officials at Belmont University no longer attends the Nashville institution, The Tennessean reports.
The post, commenting on a photograph of Philadelphia Eagles football players raising their fists during the performance of the national anthem, contained a racial slur and said, “Every one of them needs a damn bullet in their head.” The image was widely shared on social media.
The university said in a statement posted on Facebook that “the person involved is no longer a student at Belmont.”
“As a Christian institution, it is our goal to build a diverse and inclusive community where all members feel accepted, safe, and valued,” an earlier statement said.
