SYRACUSE, N.Y. — Syracuse has suspended a women’s soccer player for using a homophobic and racial slur.
Hanna Strong, a senior from Monson, Massachusetts, was suspended indefinitely after she was identified as the person speaking toward someone else in a video posted on Instagram.
Athletic director Daryl Gross says in a statement such “intolerant and hurtful language, focused on both race and sexual orientation, is not part of the culture we seek to foster .
Gross says the university is investigating and results will be sent to the school’s Office of Students Rights and Responsibilities.
The school has made no statement regarding Strong’s status as a student.
