A Kansas State University student went to Snapchat to post a photo of her in black face and using the ‘N’ word. The school has since released a statement saying “there is no place for racism at our university.” The school stated that the girl was no longer a student there.

University spokesman Jeff Morris told the Associated Press that neither person in the photo attends the school anymore. One woman attended last spring but did not return for the fall. The photo was tagged in the school Facebook account but then deleted because it was flagged inappropriate.

Paige Shoemaker, the girl who posted the photo says she was in a facial mask. She said,

“It was sent in a joking manner to our friends. I am the least racist and most accepting person you will meet. Never would I send it in a derogatory way.”

Shoemaker took to her Facebook to send a public apology. She said,

“I want to formally apologize for the picture that has gone viral …We clearly understand that what was said and done was completely disrespectful. We never intended for the picture to offend anyone. We had only meant for it to be taken in a funny way, but we clearly understand that what we said should never be joked around about.”
