Haverford College in Pennsylvania recently withdrew an offer to one of their incoming men’s lacrosse players due to his past comments on social media. The posts in question were described as racist and homophobic.

The school said that the posts ‘recently came to light’ regarding the player in question. We do not know who the player was with the racist past.

“We, the Haverford College Men’s Lacrosse family, are deeply concerned by several racist and homophobic posts made by an incoming student that have recently come to light,” Haverford men’s lacrosse head coach Nick Taylor said in a post on Twitter. “We understand and share the frustration and anger felt by the greater college community in response to said posts. The matter has been fully investigated by the Haverford College administration and athletic department and the student’s offer of admittance has been rescinded. We would also like to make it clear that, regardless of the school’s decision, racism and homophobia have no place in our family.
