The LaCrosse Tribune is reporting Sarah Semrad is no longer the Vice Chairman of the College Democrats of Wisconsin after a pair of Twitter posts caused controversy.
As first reported at Media Trackers, Semrad, a student at UW-La Crosse, posted on Twitter in October, “I f—-ng hate white men” (with the full obscenity) and, “My new bit is tearing down all the pro life Christian pregnancy resource center fliers that they put up around campus to try & trick people.”
The Tribune reports Semrad apologized in an email to the newspaper.
“In a moment of impulsivity and immaturity, I posted the tweet about white males as an expression of frustration towards my male friend who wouldn’t ask for directions,” she wrote. “My tweet about posters described my actions after I saw and removed one poster that was hanging on campus that had not received proper university approval for on-campus posting.
“I recognize that my words were neither humorous nor harmless, and sincerely apologize to all who have been hurt, offended or embarrassed by them,” she continued. “My commitment to social justice remains steadfast and will not be deterred by these events, and I vow to use the maturity and sensitivity that would reflect that going forward.
It is unknown how many white males were offended by her apology claiming that they don’t ask for directions. The campus police does not have any reports of vandalism that can attributed to Semrad, according to the Tribune.
