The following day, Babe[4] confirmed that Carnley had been expelled from school. David Shelnutt, Gainesville High Principal told Babe, "The student who made the postings is no longer attending GHS." He continued:

"I could not disagree more with the ideas in these posts. They certainly do not represent our school's culture. GHS is a wonderfully diverse school where students come together and do amazing things. One student does not speak for 1,800 classmates. While this is an extremely unfortunate situation, I hope it will also serve as a learning opportunity for our students."

That day, Twitter [6] user @VenusAsABun posted a screenshot of the original Reddit post and the Babe.net article with the caption "Remember: It only takes 36 hours ruin a racist’s life." The post (shown below) received more than 4,700 retweets and 14,000 likes in 24 hours.
