Description

A student at Syracuse University who has been identified as senior soccer player Hanna Strong was caught on video after an altercation with another student yelling "Are you recording this, you faggot-ass nigger?" The origins of the video have not been released nor have details on what caused the woman to begin yelling, but since its release Strong has been suspended from the soccer team by her coach, Phil Wheddon. Syracuse's director of athletics, Daryl Gross, released a statement regarding the video, which goes on to feature Strong saying, "Call me out on saying the n-word. I don't give a shit." Via New York Daily News: "This type of intolerant and hurtful language, focused on both race and sexual orientation, is not part of the culture we seek to foster among our student-athletes and it has no place at Syracuse University," Gross wrote. "Syracuse Athletics, as a strong and diverse part of this University community, has zero tolerance for these actions." The campus's Department of Public Safety is investigating the case.
