The sorority at the University of New Hampshire whose members were caught on video rapping the N-word in Kanye West’s song “Gold Digger” will not be punished, TMZ reported Thursday.

A spokesperson at the public university told the gossip news site that the Alpha Phi sorority was never being investigated for the video, despite earlier reports.

The Snapchat video surfaced on an anti-racism student Facebook group called “All Eyes on UNH” and showed several women dancing and loudly singing the N-word as part of lyrics to the song.

The school spokesperson told TMZ that the sorority members showed poor judgment but that they wouldn’t face any disciplinary action. Spokeswoman Erika Mantz told NH1 in an interview Wednesday that the school is both committed to free speech and providing a safe campus for everyone.

“We believe strongly in the right to free speech as recognized by the First Amendment, and we also believe in the right of every member of our community to feel safe and respected,” she said. “We continue to work to improve our campus culture through education, awareness and action.”
