Controversial social media post has many upset

Posted: Updated:
(NBC) -

A college student is receiving a lot of backlash after posting a picture on social media.

The Texas A&M student posted a picture of herself with black tape covering her face. 

The picture is captioned with "When you're tryna fit in at your NBCU." (Historically Black College and University)

There have been many opinions about the picture. Some calling for the freshman to be expelled and others saying those who post mean comments about her are uncalled for. Others are wondering why the picture was ever posted. 

The president of the school says the institute has "a duty to educate the community, to act in a responsible manner, and recognize that speech does have consequences."

No disciplinary actions will be taken against the student at this time.
