***WARNING: OFFENSIVE CONTENT***
We can’t believe we’re still hearing about this in 2018. Parents and people everywhere: Do better.
Earlier this week, a video circulated around Twitter after two young women — identified by fellow Twitter users as Conestoga High School students — went on Instagram live saying the N-word. Disgusting.
According to multiple social media users, the woman on the right is Charlotte de Vries — a student committed to play field hockey at UNC Chapel Hill this fall. Now, fans and people across the Internet are calling for the university to take a stand against racism and bigotry by stripping her scholarship.
See some of the outraged reactions (below):
Me waiting for @UNCFieldHockey to issue a response about their most recent racist recruit… If this girl is neither smart nor decent enough to not say the n-word, much less on a video posted to the world wide web, she isn’t smart nor decent enough to hold the same degree as me. pic.twitter.com/arpYAc8BDp

Very interesting… I can see that our field hockey commit’s name is Charlotte de Vries… if you still thinking about coming to unc, I’d love to have a word with you and I’d love for you to withdraw that commitment ASAP. Thanks. https://t.co/71jUM3JI4Y

Do you recognize the racist committed field hockey player from Conestoga, PA? Take the scholarship away. Condemn racism. This is not acceptable, especially at our universities. Stand up for your students of color before she impacts UNC for the worse

I’m not gonna tweet the video bc it contains a word that I find every bit of disgusting, but a field hockey player committed to UNC said some stupid things on an IG live video that young, dumb, rich people often do and now she will lose her scholarship as she should.

@UNC the girl on the right is committed to play field hockey at your school, is this the type of students you deem appropriate to represent your school? disgusting https://t.co/POgpDJ1niR

@UNC are you guys still going to commit this young lady for field hockey after she publicly posted saying “nigger, and nigger Tuesday”? Is this what your college represents? https://t.co/ZyTZCBEMTL

We shall. @UNC it’s unfortunate that a racist will be representing your school and your field hockey team. I hope proper actions are taken regarding her behavior since she is already committed.

The disgusting girl on the right has committed to @UNC for field hockey. Her behavior is reprehensible and someone of her character – or lack thereof – has no place at our university. https://t.co/gL8kq4yuJf
