KU Researcher Calls YAF Chair “Motherf*****” in Twitter Meltdown

UPDATED: 2:37 PM 9/26/16 In a tweet posted Sunday evening, Mark White, a researcher in the University of Kansas’ (KU) Social Psychology Program, referred to KU Young Americans for Freedom Chair Gabe Lepinski as a “mother*****” and told him to “f*** off” campus. White, who has since protected his Twitter account, also referred to Lepinski as a “garbage human being.”   ku_screenshot2 ku_screenshot4 ku_screesnhot1 According to the University of Kansas’ website, White is a researcher in the school’s Crandall Lab where he studies, “how people justify their prejudicial attitudes to themselves and others.” White’s posts directed at Lepinski were in reaction to a confrontation at KU YAF’s meeting Thursday night, a video of which went viral over the weekend. The video, first published by Young America’s Foundation, documented a group of social justice warriors screaming obscenities at YAF students about “micro aggressions,” “safe spaces,” and much more. Since exposing this harassment, KU YAF has experienced more targeting by campus leftists and is at risk of being de-recognized by the school. How will the university respond to White’s disgusting words about Lepinski? UPDATE: Mark White deleted his Twitter account Monday afternoon following the publishing of this report.  This story will continue to be updated as more information becomes available.
