Police charged two students in connection with offensive graffiti discovered over the weekend on a residence hall bulletin board at Miami University.

A spokeswoman for the university in Oxford, Ohio, declined to describe what the defaced bulletin board said, but she said the content was “offensive to many groups of people,” reported the Cincinnati Enquirer.

Students said the graffiti, which was discovered in Wells Hall, contained racist, sexist, anti-Semitic, and homophobic statements.

“There are people in our hall that were offended by the comments and it affected them personally,” said Shannon Reilly, a first-year student who lives in the building.

The graffiti was discovered after students returned from spring break at the all-freshman residence hall.

Similar graffiti was found at two off-campus fraternity houses at the university, but Miami officials said they don’t believe the incidents are connected.

“I am deeply disappointed that any of our students would choose deliberately to behave in such a reprehensible way, and with so obvious an intent to offend or hurt,” said university president David Hodge in a statement.

The students, who have not yet been identified, also face university discipline.

Published

There are questions as to whether Kanye West is running a "spoiler" bid for president to help re-elect his friend, Donald Trump, according to a new report by The New York Times.

"At least four people who have been active in Republican politics are linked to Kanye West’s attempt to get on the presidential ballot this year. The connection raises questions about the aims of the entertainer’s effort and whether it is regarded within the G.O.P. as a spoiler campaign that could aid President Trump, even as those close to Mr. West have expressed concerns about his mental health as he enters the political arena," the newspaper reported.
