Statement from The Citadel regarding a racially offensive social media post
Yesterday, an alumnus of The Citadel fabricated an abhorrent fake news release appearing to be from The Citadel. The nature of the post was racially offensive; The Citadel will not sit idly by and tolerate comments of this nature. While the post appeared in a private Facebook group and has since been deleted, it is important to publicly condemn these comments in the strongest possible terms, as they are completely opposed to our core values—Honor, Duty and Respect. Further, every quote included in the fake post was forged. The slanderous statements do not reflect the actual views of The Citadel or its leadership.
