SYRACUSE, N.Y. ― Syracuse University has suspended a women’s soccer player for using a homophobic and racial slur.

Hanna Strong, a senior from Monson, Massachusetts, was suspended indefinitely after she was identified as the person speaking toward someone else in a video posted on Instagram.

Athletic director Daryl Gross says in a statement such “intolerant and hurtful language, focused on both race and sexual orientation, is not part of the culture we seek to foster … and it has no place at Syracuse University.”

Gross says the university is investigating and results will be sent to the school’s Office of Students Rights and Responsibilities.

The school has made no statement regarding Strong’s status as a student.
