Student in anti-Asian rant says she’ll leave UCLA
LOS ANGELES (AP) - A student who posted an Internet video of her tirade against the Asian population at the University of California, Los Angeles, says she’s leaving school.
In a statement Friday night to the Daily Bruin campus newspaper, Alexandra Wallace says she has chosen to no longer attend classes at UCLA because of threats and harassment in the wake of the three-minute video.
Earlier Friday, university officials said they would not discipline Wallace because her video was an exercise of free speech, not hate speech, and it didn’t violate the student code of conduct.
In the video, Wallace complained about Asian students talking on their phones too loudly in the library, among other gripes.
She took down the rant shortly after posting it Sunday, but it had already gone viral.
