Four members of Kansas’ cheer squad have been suspended pending an inquiry after a photo that included the caption “Kkk go trump” was posted on Snapchat. The photo was posted on the account of a female cheerleader at Kansas, showing three male members of the school’s spirit squad standing next to each other wearing “K” sweatshirts for Kansas.

Here’s the photo:

The incident came to light following Kansas’ blowout win over UAB in men’s basketball on Monday. Kansas Athletics posted this statement on its Twitter account on Tuesday:

Lili Gagin, whose Snapchat post showed the photo, asserted on Twitter that she did not post the photo to her account, per the Kansas City Star:

“I’m appalled that a snapchat was put out on my snapchat and posted to my account,” Gagin tweeted. “I would never (have) done that & I apologize that it happened.”

The Jayhawks play next against UNC Asheville on Friday.
