“prospective student who posted racist comments in social media will not be joining the University of Florida community this fall”
The craziest aspect of this story is that the effort to cancel this young woman appears to be led by an 18 year-old Disney star.
The College Fix reports:
University of Florida rescinds admission to student for old ‘racist’ posts; she’s getting death threats
Liberty Woodley had the misfortune to be a 16-year-old after the creation of Instagram.
She’s now lost her spot at the University of Florida thanks to a rich, privileged actress who has made it her mission to shame colleges into rescinding admission offers for students whose social media have offended her.
Skai Jackson dug up her nearly two-year-old posts and made a spectacle out of Woodley (above), leading the taxpayer-funded institution to publicly rescind Woodley’s acceptance offer without explicitly naming her.
The 18-year-old Disney star posted images of Woodley’s Instagram and Twitter profiles and her high school’s post that she had received a merit-based Florida Academic Scholarship. Woodley had confessed as a 16-year-old on Instagram that “i really try so hard not to be a racist person, but i most definitely am … & it gets the best of me sometimes.” She complained that two black girls sitting behind her “won’t shut the fuck up” and “i want to punch them,” and said they were “most definitely crackwhores.”
The University of Florida said Monday night that a “prospective student who posted racist comments in social media will not be joining the University of Florida community this fall.” WCJB reported that the student UF mentioned was Woodley, though the school refused to confirm it.
Woodley’s family told The Gainesville Sun before UF rescinded her acceptance that she was getting death threats and “hate-filled messages.”
The family knew about her offensive social media posts back in January and “marched her to the principal’s office,” said her father Tom, who teaches and coaches baseball at her high school. “We are not racist people. That is not the case and that’s how it’s being portrayed.”
