An incoming law student’s admission to Southern Methodist University Dedman School of Law in Dallas was revoked Wednesday because of alleged racially offensive social media content.

“SMU has revoked its offer of admission to an incoming Dedman School of Law student, based on the student’s racially offensive behavior recorded on social media that contradicts the university’s core values—specifically, its commitment to diversity and inclusion,” said a law school statement on Twitter. “Racism has no place on a campus that embraces respect for all SMU students, faculty and staff and equips its students to make a difference in the world.”
