On January 15, 2018, Pulliam posted a Snapchat story with the caption, “Bodak Black niggers.” As a result, Pulliam was removed from OSU’s chapter of the Sigma Phi Epsilon fraternity and his position with OSU residential life. OSU President Burns Hargis released a statement condemning Pulliam’s behavior. Pulliam later apologized for the caption.
