LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) — A University of Kansas cheerleader has been suspended from cheering after a photo was posted on her Snapchat account linking the Ku Klux Klan with President-elect Donald Trump.
Associate athletic director Jim Marchiony says university officials were made aware of the social media posting during the men’s basketball team’s 83-63 victory over UAB. Marchiony says the male cheer squad members haven’t been suspended. Their involvement is under investigation.
KU Athletics said in an official statement that a Twitter user reported the Snapchat photo to the school. A tweet from the school described what happened as “unacceptable.”
