The university received multiple reports of a noose found on the Lincoln Park campus, according to a campus alert. The report comes during a week of tense climate following a campus-wide protest after a controversial speaker’s event.

“Late this afternoon we received multiple reports that a noose – a horrific symbol of racist intimidation – was found on the Lincoln Park campus,” the alert read. Several DePaul students on Twitter and Facebook voiced their concern about a noose being found on campus. A photo featuring a rope on a sidewalk is circulating on social media, though no discernible location is evident in that photo.

The university said that the situation is being investigated and that “those found to be responsible will be held accountable.” Those with information are urged to call Public Safety.

Earlier this week, a student painted the phrase “F— Mexico” on the Quad. The student was apprehended Tuesday afternoon and taken into custody by Chicago police.

Tuesday evening, a chaotic scene erupted after an event featuring controversial Breitbart reporter Milo Yiannopoulos was interrupted by two protesters. Event attendees and protesters outside spilled across campus as Yiannopoulos left the event, prompting tense discourse across campus.

    Sounds like another hoax so someone can play traumatized victim. Depaul looks worse and worse.

    When you say “another hoax,” are you referring to the previous “F— Mexico” vandalism? Because that does not appear to be a “hoax.” Here is the student’s arrest record: http://publicsearch1.chicagopolice.org/Arrests/Details/17251332

    It’s almost as though some people in these comment sections have never heard of DePaul before this Milo incident and refuse to consider any possibility that doesn’t conform with their gut feelings on the topic.

    I’ve seen a picture of it. Looks like some twine that got dropped. Does not look like a ‘noose’.

    Oh what a load of utter garbage. I find it interesting that this popped up so conveniently after SJW terrorists assaulted a gay man on stage and got cover from DePaul faculty.

    It’s going to be even sweeter than the laughing stock DePaul and your hysterical unhinged students have become when it’s revealed its a hoax perpetrated by the same idiotic protesters who threatened and violently treated those who were within their right to support Milo. This is the blueprint for Blacklivesmatter and their shrill supporters. Every single case of these antics has been exposed as done by the violent blacklivesmatter and their supporters. It’s sad that these children still are not humbled by their foul behavior and resort to more shaming themselves.

    DePaul continues to be a laughingstock. Nobody is going to believe this hoax.

    If they investigate and find it was some leftist SJWhiner, will the issue suddenly be dropped?
    Rhetorical question. Of course it will fade into the nothingness.

    Oh, that’s alright then. There’s a simple solution to racism (or the perception of it) just end free speech on campus. Problem solved.

    Its was planted because De Paul ha been shown to be a white hating institution

    do note that the sent tweet has since been deleted, and of course the author declines to link to that tweet which is the only report of said incident, or any other report if it exists (hint: it doesn’t).

    this is pathetic, no wonder DePaul is in such a state.
