In the first video, student Harley Barber is at a sink when she proceeds to turn off the water and go into a rant where says the n-word several times.


“I love how I act like I love black people because I f**king hate ni**ers, so that’s really interesting. I f**king hate ni**ers, but I just saved the f**king ni**ers by shutting that water off,” she says.


In a second video, Barber addresses the growing backlash toward her first video and apparently threats to turn her into her Alpha Phi sorority officials.

“I’ve wanted to be an Alpha Phi since I was fucking in high school and nobody fucking understands how much I love Alpha Phi. And now someone wants to say I’m offensive because I said ‘ni**er’? You know what? Ni**er, ni**er, ni**er. I don’t care if it’s Martin Luther King Day. Ni**er, ni**er, ni**er. I’m in the South now, b**ch. So everyone can f**k off. I’m from New Jersey, so I can say ‘ni**er’ as much as I want. Ni**er, ni**er, ni**er. And if anyone else wants to f**king snake me on my f**king Finsta for saying ni**er?”

According to a report from Alabama news website al.com, following the circulation of the videos, which have since been deleted, Linda Kahangi, executive director of Alpha Phi International Fraternity, released a statement saying that Harley had been removed from Alpha Phi.

The University of Alabama also released the following statement:

“These remarks are ignorant and disturbing and in no way reflect the values of The University of Alabama. This unfortunate behavior has been reported to the Office of Student Conduct as it does not align with the community expectations of students at the Capstone.”
