Chris Weiland has been fired from the school’s track and cross-country teams after he apparently used the N word, as well as homophobic and sexist slurs in a video and text message.
Weiland was previously suspended from the team over the text message and video, coach Avery Anderson confirmed Tuesday, but was reinstated before the evidence surfaced publicly on social media.
Now, however, Weiland is permanently banned from the team after footage went viral on Monday showing him using the N word while he complained that an ex-girlfriend cheated on him with an African American. According to the Los Angeles Times, the incidents occurred before Weiland enrolled at UCLA in the fall of 2019.

“When I first heard about this a few months ago, I was upset and immediately suspended him from the team indefinitely,” Anderson said in the statement. ‘Even in my disgust, as a coach, my intentions are always to lead and educate and make the change I want to see happen in this world.
“It became clear that his continued involvement with the team is incompatible with the culture of mutual support and respect that we are fostering,” continued Anderson, who is African American. “Now I realize that the decision to reinstate him was not the right decision, and that today’s action is in the best interest of the well-being of our team.”

That same account claimed in a legend that “this racist behavior was brought up to the coaches and the athletic director months ago,” but noted that “Chris Weiland is still on the team.”
In the video, which was verified by the LA Times, Weiland appears to be complaining about a girlfriend leaving him for someone else: ‘When he said he didn’t want to get back together, why do you think? It’s because she wants to be with this fucking bitch who has no future. She’s going to be with a stupid nigger who’s going to be in community college her entire life.
She probably lives in the damn ghetto.
At the end of the dark, pixelated video, Weiland can be seen in a UCLA hoodie.
@Ucla_is_racist also posted a text message in which Weiland apparently accused the woman of sleeping with the unidentified man.
“ You really handcuffed (sic) a F *** ING BUM A ** N ***** WITHOUT ANYTHING FOR HIM, ” the text message read. ‘A BROKEN A ** STUPID A ** N *****.’
In another caption, Weiland is accused of repeatedly using this type of language and not being held accountable by the school.
“After this racist behavior was brought up to the coaches and athletic director months ago, Chris Weiland is still on the team wearing and representing a BLM patch,” @ucla_is_racist wrote on Monday, before his dismissal.

In response to his firing, UCLA’s Black Student-Athlete Alliance condemned the school for failing to previously ban Weiland.
“ As a university defending itself on the achievements of its black athletes who have broken the barriers of social justice, we find it deeply disturbing to learn that UCLA was aware of an incident of blatant racism, homophobia and sexism and took minimal action. ” ‘. read the statement.
We at BSAA refuse to accept the actions of that athlete, as well as the lack of action to address the issue on the part of coaches, staff and administration.
