A group of Black students at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee are calling for the expulsion of a fellow student who was caught on video saying the N-word repeatedly and using anti-gay slurs. Officials at the university have reportedly investigated the video.


The Black Student Union demanded that the student be expelled.

The school’s Black Student Union posted a statement from Jussel to the UW-Milwaukee community on Friday stating the school could not discipline the student because the video was filmed before they enrolled in classes at the university. According to the statement, the school’s code of conduct only applies to incidents that occur when a student is already registered for study.

The student has reportedly left on-campus housing and withdrew from in-person classes.
