A white University of Kentucky student has been arrested and charged after video shows her attacking a Black student and calling her a “n***** b****” in an incident early Sunday that has since gone viral.
Sophia Rosing, 22, was arrested at a campus residence hall around 4 a.m. on charges of assault, disorderly conduct, public intoxication, and assault on a police officer, according to online arrest records.
Bond Set At $10K For Racist White Girl’s Attack On Black Student In Damning Viral Video
Her bond was set at $10,000, according to the New York Post. As of Monday, it was still unclear whether or not she has been or will be expelled from the university.
Video shows as a highly intoxicated Rosing, who is white, stumbled into the university’s Boyd Hall, where Kylah Spring was working at the dormitory’s front desk.
Spring explained in a TikTok video that she tried to check on the woman, but was instead physically assaulted and called a series of disgusting racist slurs.

“Could you stop, please?” Spring asked Rosing after she tried to take a swing at her, one video shows.
“Nope,” Rosing replied. “You’re a n***** and you’re a b****.”
Spring, somehow remaining calm throughout all of it, replied. “Oh Jesus Lord, I do not get paid enough for this.” “I got this all on video,” another voice off-camera said.
Another student attempted to help Spring place Rosing in a seat, prompting her to start swinging on them. Rosing kicked Spring before trying to push a shopping cart at them, additional footage shows.
Rosing Told Victim “Do My Chores” As She Punched, Kicked And Bit Her, Video Shows
In her TikTok video, Spring said Rosing punched her several times, bit her arm and kicked her in the stomach.
Amidst the assault, Rosing could be heard ordering to her to do her chores, adding “it’s not my fault that you’re Black.”
“The girl starts saying things like ‘Do my chores,’ ‘It’s not my fault that you’re Black,’ ‘It’s not my fault that you’re ugly,’ and at this point she’s like singing the n-word,” Spring said.

Police eventually arrived on scene and cuffed Rosing, who continued to use the n-word while refusing to provide the officers with her name.
“Hey, guess what? You’re going to jail,” the arresting officer told Rosing.

“I understand an apology may not help but I am not racist. I was under the influence (and) I lost everything literally and now have to fear for my life. God forgives me, please understand,” Rosing wrote.
However, eye witness accounts on Twitter said she had been kicked out of an area bar recently for using racial sluts, with a photo of her being tossed by a bouncer making the rounds on social media.

In a statement released Sunday morning, the University of Kentucky condemned the assault, calling it “disturbing” and “deeply offensive,” however the statement failed to reveal Rosing’s name.
“Early this morning, a disturbing incident was captured on video in a residence hall,” the university said. “The video is deeply offensive, and we take it very seriously.”
University Says It’s Conducting An Immediate Investigation, Victim Says More Needs To Be Done To Protect Students
The school’s Office of Student Conduct says it’s conducting an immediate investigation and added that its Student Success teams have reached out to Spring to offer support.
“The safety and well-being of our students is our top priority, and we will not tolerate behavior that threatens it,” the University of Kentucky said.
Meanwhile, University president Eli Capilouto similarly sent a message to the university community saying there will be a full investigation.
Spring said the school needs to do more to ensure students don’t deal with such racist attacks on campus in the future.
“The problem here is that this happens way too much on college campuses for things to not be done and we get these emails and everything about how [the university doesn’t] tolerate it, but it’s still happening,” she said. “I feel like at this point, the attention needs to be shifted from the offenders to the offended.”
Rosing was arraigned on Monday, according to a tweet by local reporter Sydney Darden.
