FSU: No Punishment For Student Who Used Racial Slurs On Social Media

A Florida State University student who claimed her social media account was hacked has withdrawn a request for an investigation by the FSU Police Department.

Messages posted through twitter and vine accounts used by the student used racial slurs to identify black students at FSU and Florida A&M University.

The posts caused an uproar on social media and the student initially claimed her account was hacked.

University officials say there won't be any further investigations into the incident, nor are there plans to move forward with any action against the student.
