Syracuse Soccer Player Shouts Offensive Slurs At Someone (Video)

| by Sarah Fruchtnicht

A member of the Syracuse University women’s soccer team was suspended after she called a person a “f*ggot-ass n*gger” in an Instagram video.

Syracuse senior Hanna Strong is now under a discrimination investigation for using racist and homophobic slurs against a black male, according to the Daily Mail.

The midfielder was suspended by Coach Phil Wheddon after being identified in the video.

“If you touch me, it will be over,” she tells a man in the video as he walks away with his hands up.

“Are you recording this? You f*ggot-ass n*gger,” she shouts at another person off-camera. “It’s bullshit.”

She seems to panic at the end of the video, repeating, "Don't record me saying this."

“We are aware of the offensive comments made last night by a member of the women's soccer team,” Syracuse’s athletic director, Daryl Gross, said in a statement.

“This type of intolerant and hurtful language, focused on both race and sexual orientation, is not part of the culture we seek to foster among our student-athletes and it has no place at Syracuse University,” he added.

Strong, originally from Monson Massachusetts, has played five games this season, according to the The Daily Orange. She was on the Athletic Director’s Honor Roll for the last two semesters.
