Jason Scott Headshot

An incoming freshman student-athlete at Cornell University lost his place on the football team after he appeared in a social media post using a racial slur.

The Cornell Daily Sun student newspaper reports that Nate Panza, a running back from Morristown, N.J., can be heard in the video using the N-word. He then pleads with the person filming, reportedly a high school teammate, not to upload the video.

“Oh wait, you can’t put that one up. You can’t post that. Adam, you can’t post that,” Panza says in the video. The person filming then utters the slur himself, referencing George Floyd, the Black man killed by Minnesota police in May.
