Kentucky Student Allegedly Used Racial Slur 200 Times


“She’s a very, very embarrassed and humiliated young lady,” Sophia Rosing’s lawyer told NBC News about his client, who made national headlines after the University of Kentucky student was recorded repeatedly using a racial slur—WKYT reports she appeared to say the n-word more than 200 times—and assaulting two Black students in the wee hours of Sunday morning. Attorney Fred Peters said the 22-year-old would be withdrawing from the university by tomorrow at the latest and would be entering “some kind of treatment program and sensitivity program to help her through this situation.”

At the time of the incident, which occurred at the front desk of a dorm on campus, an allegedly intoxicated Rosing reportedly swings at the first-year student working the desk, Kylah Spring, while using the racial slur. Another student steps in to try to help restrain Rosing, who at one point is recorded allegedly trying to charge Spring with a shopping cart, per NBC News. Rosing is ultimately handcuffed by a police officer around 4am, and per a police report, she kicked and bit an officer and spoke of having “lots of money” and getting “special treatment” during her arrest. Multiple videos were posted to social media.

Rosing on Monday pleaded not guilty to charges of intoxication in a public place, third-degree assault on a police officer, fourth-degree assault and second-degree disorderly conduct. The Herald-Leader reports she cried during the court appearance and will return to court Nov. 15. Rosing has since lost her job at the department store Dillard’s and no longer has an influencing partnership with CollegeFashionista.

Hundreds of University of Kentucky students came together for a rally against racism Monday night, and UK President Eli Capilouto issued a statement Monday night that read in part, “The sting and strike of a racist act is felt by the victims, to be sure. But it also is felt by all of us. Failure to identify racism—and directly speak out against it—prevents us from living up to our promise and potential. We must, therefore, be accountable. We must never shrink from our responsibility to shine a light on racism and hate where it exists.” (Read more University of Kentucky stories.)
