(USA Today) – A noose was discovered hanging on a tree outside Duke University’s student center early Wednesday morning.

The noose has since been removed, but photos taken have prompted outrage on social media.

Vice President of Student Affairs Larry Moneta described the act as “hateful and stupid” in an e-mail to students early Wednesday.

“I can’t begin to describe the disgust and anger I felt, and still feel,” Moneta wrote. “Though it has since been removed, the photos are everywhere and its hateful message will sadly pervade and persist for a long time.”
