Christian univ. apologizes after prof plays 'f**k Trump' song (VIDEO)

Belmont University apologized after a speaker played music with the words "f**k Trump."

The school said the content of the presentation was not what was initially approved.

A Christian university in Tennessee has apologized after an invited guest played a song, which included the lyrics, “F**k Donald Trump.” 

Belmont University in Nashville tweeted an apology late Wednesday after video surfaced on social media capturing the nonmandatory student event, where students heard the music. The university marketed the event with Middle Tennessee State University music professor Joseph Morgan as “Music and Discourse Lecture: Joseph Morgan, MTSU ‘Popular Music and Presidential Politics’.” But, the name of the presentation on the screen, however, was reportedly, “Popular Music and the Impending Tyranny of Donald Trump.”

Lone Conservative, which obtained the video exclusively, was the first to report on the incident.

The video shows Morgan standing behind the podium as the music plays in the background. The only words that can be heard in the video are “hey, hey f**k Donald Trump.” However, students who spoke with Lone Conservative said the speaker also used the words, “p*ssy” and “vagina.”

In response, Belmont University tweeted an apology, acknowledging the “biased and disrespectful” content.

”Earlier today an outside speaker appeared at Belmont University and shared content about politics and popular culture that was biased and disrespectful. Some of the content presented, including the presentation title which was different from what had been approved by University officials, was outside the lines of what was expected,” the university tweeted. 

The University feels betrayed by the deception implicit in the actions of the guest speaker. Belmont University does not endorse the message that was delivered and also strongly objects to the obscene language that was used. We apologize to anyone who was offended as today’s event was not reflective of our Christian identity nor of our institutional commitment to civil political discourse,” the school added.
