Zack Morse spoke with Spinnaker and gave this statement concerning a racist video posted to Snapchat Wednesday:

“The situation in question is under investigation by the University, I am not really at liberty to discuss details quite yet but I can say that this entire ordeal is a harsh misunderstanding and more information soon to follow.”

When asked what the misunderstanding was, Morse said to “notice the spelling” of the caption. The caption in the video reads “What actually went on at the BML rally.”

“It was not a typo,” Morse said.

Morse was at the Black Lives Matter rally on campus Wednesday. He was counter protesting that “all lives matter, not just black lives.”

Morse would not identify the two males featured in the video and declined to specify exactly what the misunderstanding was in relation to the video.

“It was a misunderstanding and the misunderstanding will come out in the next few days,” Morse said.

He said he was shocked when he saw the video circulating on social media and did not know how it went viral.

When asked if the video was posted by accident or intentionally, Morse declined to comment.

    “I’m not racist!” then proceeds to post a racist video. Right wingers are liars and hypocrites.

    He’s garbage, and his parents Most likely are the trash bags he spilled from!!!! Once trash he will always be worthless trash and his friends, funny he don’t even look white! His day will change me when he runs into a racist cop who don’t see him as a white boy either!

    I don’t get what the media gets out of reporting on something before they even have all the details. If this was labeled BML for a reason, and wasn’t put on the BLM website by him – then shame on the media. What ever happened to investigative reporting. This kind of stuff makes me sick.

    This is what is wrong with the media today. They report on something before they even have all the details. The caption clearly read BML – and it sounds like it wasn’t put on the website by him. Why not investigate it thoroughly before labeling someone for the rest of their lives.
