An incoming college freshman to Arizona Christian University had her scholarship rescinded after social media posts surfaced showing her justifying the death of George Floyd at the hands of Minneapolis police, AZFamily reports.
The woman, who is a cheerleader from Ohio, was planning to join ACU’s acrobatic and tumbling team. But her scholarship has since been revoked after the post on her Instagram was brought to the attention of school officials.
The post said that Floyd had followed the law “there wouldn’t be issues” and that everyone “need to shut up about this guy who died.”
“[He] wasn’t innocent he was doing something illegal,” the post read, ending with an endorsement of President Trump.
“On Monday, that post, (along with another post from May, showing the student signing her offer letter to ACU and stating that she was excited to grow closer to God) was shared thousands of times,” AZFamily reports. “By Tuesday afternoon, the university, which is in Glendale and has about 750 students, rescinded its offer, stating that the university is a ‘racially diverse community’ and they would be ‘praying for her.'”
