Baylor University has made a statement in response to a video that has gone viral. 

In the video, a Baylor student claims she was approached and subjected to offensive language from other students. 

Baylor released the statement below on Twitter: 

Baylor administration has been made aware of a student who was pushed and subjected to racially offensive language from another student yesterday while on campus. The behavior is deeply disturbing and does not in any way reflect Baylor's faith or values. We wholeheartedly condemn the behavior... We have connected with the student and are working with her to ensure she feels safe and supported by the Baylor community.

"We are a caring, Christian community in which acts of violence and insensitivity have no place," said Baylor Vice President for Student Life Dr. Kevin P. Jackson. 

The university says it is investigating the situation and will provide help to the student affected by the comments.
