A group of high school girls visiting the District of Columbia were kicked off the campus of Howard University for wearing a Trump hat, which the school said was making students feel unsafe.

A student at the historically black college going by the name “EssenceDalton” on Twitter posted a photo of the girls on Saturday, writing: “who told these lil yt girls they could come to THE HU like it was about to be some joke.”

“Yt” is short for “whitey.”

The school responded assuring they will “take any action necessary to ensure that HU students feel safe& comfortable in our dining spaces,” adding: “This group is no longer on campus.”

The girls later told their story on Twitter:

They also highlighted how an anti-racist activist threatened to “beat the f**k out of them”:

Many others issued similar threats:
