North Alabama Faces Controversy Over Antigay Instagram Post

June 25, 2021

The president of the student government at the University of North Alabama has apologized for an antigay Instagram post but has not said he will resign, WAFF News reported. The post said, “Born this way? You must be born again” beside an image of a rainbow.

“My role as SGA president is to honorably represent all the students of UNA and I have failed at that ideal,” SGA president Jake Statom said. “I ask for your forgiveness and grace as I strive to be a better campus leader and servant for the students.”

Some students are demanding his impeachment. “Members of the LGBTQ community don’t want him in that position of power, because he doesn’t think that we have the right to exist,” Sarah Arnsparger said.
