Student comes under fire for 'racially insensitive' Cinco de Mayo post

The 'spoiled' student who once tried to sue her own parents for child support has come under fire for her racially insensitive Cinco de Mayo post.

Rachel Canning – who made international headlines after she took her parents to court in 2014 to accuse them of abandoning her – posted a picture of herself and her grinning lacrosse teammates, one of whom was doing a keg stand, on Instagram on May 5.

'Dear Mr. Trump, glad you didn't build that wall JUST YET. Happy Mexican St. Paddy's from our honorary Amigos to yours,' the junior at Western New England University in Massachusetts, captioned the picture, along with an emoji of a man with a mustache.

One of Canning's teammates then posted a similar picture, captioning it, 'Build that wall #wnelax.'

Both posts, which gained hundreds of 'likes' on Instagram, have sparked outrage on the campus with many branding them 'racist'. Many also reported it to the private university with calls for disciplinary actions against the pair.

Jordan Mieko, shared both posts on her Facebook page, with the caption: 'Problematic racist yt ppl @ my school.'

Her sentiments have been echoed by scores of other students who say they were 'disturbed' and 'saddened' by the post, which appears to welcome Trump's proposed wall, but not before the students were able to use the Mexican holiday as an excuse to party.
