A student at Texas Christian University has been banned from campus and charged with disorderly conduct and inflicting "emotional harm" as a result of his controversial social media posts.

After the Baltimore riots in April, TCU student Harry Vincent posted on Facebook, calling the rioters “hoodrat criminals” who receive government benefits.

He also tweeted some insensitive opinions about Muslims, saying Islam is “clearly not a religion of peace," and telling someone to "chill the f--k out you Islamic s--t head."

One Twitter user who was offended by the comments, took screenshots and posted them to her Tumblr page with a message suggesting others "email TCU and tell them that he's shedding a bad light on their university."

She identifies herself on Tumblr as Kelsey, a 19 year-old from Maryland who does not appear to be a TCU student.

Regardless, just one day after Kelsey’s post, Vincent received a letter from the Associate Dean of Campus Life Glory Robinson, informing him that he violated the student code sections on disorderly conduct and "infliction of bodily or emotional harm.”

As punishment, Vincent has been suspended through August 15 and placed on “disciplinary probation” through his graduation from TCU, according to the Foundation for Individual Rights in Education (FIRE). Vincent is banned from living on campus and participating in any extracurricular activities. He can only attend classes, and he is expected to complete a course on diversity and perform 60 hours of community service.

“If the TCU administration is willing to punish its students every time they offend someone on the Internet, TCU students should be very afraid,” said Ari Cohn, an attorney at FIRE. “That TCU would sacrifice its students’ free speech and due process rights to appease a social media mob betrays where its priorities lie—with its public relations department, not its students’ fundamental rights.”

FIRE notes that TCU is a private university and is not legally bound by the First Amendment. However, the group says Vincent’s punishment violates school policy, which claims to support freedom of expression for all members of the university community.

FIRE also argues Vincent was coerced into writing an apology before he was actually found guilty. This is a violation of its “Fair Play Rights for Students” policy, which states that students have the right “to remain silent about any incident in which s/he is a suspect,” and “no form of harassment shall be used by a university representative to coerce admissions of guilt.”
