University of Missouri Student Not Facing Discipline Over Racist Message

A Mizzou student who sent a a racist Snapchat message to a friend will not face punishment by the university.

In a letter to the campus community, President Mun Choi said that after the university learned of the message, it was investigated and after review, found that it was sent to a friend of the student and did not harass any individual.

The message was deemed to have been covered under the First Amendment and the university has no grounds upon which to discipline the student.

It does however condemn the message for going against the values of the university.
