MANHATTAN, Kan. (AP) — Kansas State University is reviewing its options after a tweet by a student about the death of George Floyd prompted outrage from several students, including two football players who threatened to leave, the school’s president said Friday.
McNeil describes himself as the founder of a conservative group called America First Students, which Kansas State says is not currently registered on the campus because of a lack of membership.
America First Students had already drawn the ire of students for past statements made by McNeil.
McNeil did not respond to a message to America First Students seeking comment Friday.
Kansas State spokesman Jeff Morris said America First Students is currently not registered on the campus.
