Another Racist Snapchat: Cheerleaders Suspended For 'KKK Go Trump' Pic

The University of Kansas suspended four cheerleaders from performing after a Snapchat photo mentioned the KKK.

The cheerleaders - three male, one female - will not perform while the university investigates the matter, the athletic department announced Tuesday.

According to the university, all four cheerleaders will remain suspended until the university completes a formal investigation.

A University of Kansas cheerleader along with three members of the spirit squad have been suspended for a photo from Snapchat linking President-elect Donald Trump to the Ku Klux Klan, CBS News reported.

The photo shows three members of the cheer squad wearing sweaters with "K" representing "Kansas" on their chests.

KU Athletics released a statement on twitter saying "this behavior won't be tolerated" and calling the image unacceptable.

According to the Associated Press, Lili insisted that someone had taken her phone at the party, and she was not responsible for the message. "Will be dealt with appropriately", the tweet read.

On her own Twitter account, she denied that she had posted the photo. "I'm appalled that a snapchat was put out on my snapchat and posted on my account", she said.

"I mean I don't know what they expected in the first place, those kids, what they expected was going to happen", said Zac Granger.
