A University of Tennessee sorority girl was suspended Thursday after a video surfaced of her saying a racial slur.
The Alpha Chi Omega chapter immediately took matters into their own hands at the 28,000-student university in Knoxville, Tennessee after seeing the offensive 6-second clip posted on Twitter. The college student answered a question from someone off-camera.
“Sav, what do you call black people?” a male voice asks.
“N*ggers!” the girl replies after exhaling cigarette smoke.
The tweet identified the woman as Savannah Micillo.
“I just graduated from #utk & this disgusting behavior SHOULD NOT be tolerated,” the message read.
According to a directory at the university, Micillo is a pre-professional program major. She failed to return several messages seeking comment on Friday. Sorority officials responded to the original tweet four hours after it was posted and it seemed that the member in the video had been suspended.
“Our chapter and this entire campus should be able to expect far more from our members,” Alpha Chi Omega tweeted.
A message that asked for any comments from university personnel was not immediately returned early Friday morning.
