UPUA Diversity Chair in Twubble
Update 8:49 PM: Karn has resigned from his position. He was not present at the meeting. UPUA President Christian Ragland read his statement, found here.
According to the Daily Collegian,
Newly appointed UPUA Student Life and Diversity Chairman Noah Karn has come under fire for racial and gay slurs posted on his Twitter page.
The allegations against Karn surfaced Thursday evening, when Rainbow Roundtable President and former UPUA Student Life and Diversity Chairman Steve Lucas said he saw several offensive posts on Karn’s Twitter account.
Lucas (senior-English) said the tweets were removed shortly after he first saw them, but he saved screenshots of posts he called into question.
Onward State has acquired the screenshots in question, found below. Karn, formerly ‘TheBaumer89,’ will have a chance to answer questions and defend himself at tonight’s UPUA meeting at 8PM in 302 HUB.
Until then, check out what “TheBaumer89” had to say.
