RICHMOND, Va. -- The University of Richmond rescinded an offer of admission to an incoming student after learning that they posted an "offensive and racially charged" video on social media.

The university said they were made aware of the video late Monday. The statement was posted to social media on Wednesday.

"Admission to the University of Richmond is offered with the condition that students wishing to join our community maintain the academic and social/behavioral standards on which admission is based -- standards expected of all members of the community. Violation of those standards has resulted in a review and reconsideration of the admission decision," the statement said.
