Paige Shoemaker, a now former pre-med biochemistry major, was kicked out of Kansas State University after someone posted a picture of her online.
Shoemaker was hanging out with her friend when they decided to do a charcoal face mask. They took a picture together and Paige posted it to her Snapchat Story, where anyone can see it for 24 hours before it disappears.
Someone must have taken a screenshot of the picture because it was quickly posted online for everyone to see. The picture itself isn't what people are mad about...it's the caption.
"Feels good to finally be a n****" she writes.
The picture was posted to the university's Facebook page. Almost immediately, Shoemaker was kicked out.
"[Paige Shoemaker] is not currently enrolled at the university. It is our understanding the second individual in the photo is not associated with the university," said the university in a statement.
Paige has since apologized for the post, saying "I mean, not that this is a good thing but we kind of like,that word kind of happens in our friend group (because) we know that everyone is calm. We're a big family so that word does not offend anyone in our group."
But that still leaves a very important question.
Should the university be allowed to expel someone over a photo posted on her own social media platform? Or was this completely unfair to Paige Shoemaker, who just thought she was making a joke with friends? Let us know in the comments!
