Although the video has since been removed from the website, unfortunately, things uploaded to the Internet are hard to permanently delete.
Now, the video has been reuploaded to different sites and reshared on social media. Now, Southern University officials are speaking out about the situation. There is currently an open investigation into the incident to ensure a cyber crime has not been committed. The University Responds: On Tuesday, June 20, university officials released a statement about the incident.
“Southern University has received reports regarding a private video posted and shared online allegedly involving a university employee and/or student. Because of implications that a cyber-crime may have occurred, we take matters like this very seriously. It is our aim to provide a positive environment that is conducive to learning for our students and one that is supportive of faculty and staff in carrying out the University’s mission,” the statement read. “To that end, we advise and caution our students and employees on the importance of data security as well as the ramifications of their conduct on social media. We will continue to take every measure to ensure that our students and staff understand that we want to ensure their safety and well-being both on campus and online.”
