Texas State University student Turner Coulson sent out a Tweet recently that set some people on social media on fire. The tweet read “Let’s start gangs and shoot each other and attack cops then maybe the media will like us #CNNHatesMe.” In Coulson’s ‘About Me’ section on his Twitter page, it said he was a Texas State student and a member of the Sigma Alpha Epsilon chapter at Texas State. Soon after the Tweet was sent, Coulson’s Twitter account became deactivated. This comes amid Oklahoma University’s recent fraternity scandal where a video surfaced on social media depicting members of SAE chanting some racially charged lyrics, two students being expelled and the chapter shutting down. Texas State University’s Dean of Students, Margarita Arellano, says Coulson is not an active member of SAE and has not been since earlier in the semester. Arellano also says she believes every situation is different, but says she stands behind the President of the University of Oklahoma for taking the proper steps needed. Arellano also wants to reiterate that the SAE chapter at Texas State University is racially diverse and works hard for their university and community.
