"I did something really, really bad", she said in an interview with the New York Post.

In Barber's first video, she appears to talk to a bathroom mirror after turning off the sink faucet.

"We have a lot people in our organization. our team that are from a lot of different backgrounds", he said (via AL.com).

The university is investigating the video while the Alpha Phi International Fraternity has already acted and removed Barber as a member.

"Alpha Phi is a diverse, values-based organization and condemns the language and opinions in these videos", Kang wrote in an email response to a query from The Associated Press. "Alpha Phi is a diverse, values-based organization and condemns the language and opinions in these video", Linda Kahangi, the executive director of the Alpha Phi International Women's fraternity, said on January 16. She's since deleted both her Instagram accounts - her real one and the finsta where the videos first showed up.

The videos were recorded on a private Instagram account that she referred to as her "finsta", or "fake Insta", but someone recorded and shared them on Twitter, and they went viral on Martin Luther King Day. "N--r, n--r, n--r. I'm in the South now, b--h". Like, for instance, using the n-word as much as she wanted.

On Wednesday, University of Alabama president, Stuart Bell, released a statement on the school's website that addressed the "racist and disturbing" videos.

A few of her critics promised to report Barber to her sorority, Alpha Phi.

She said "leadership and supporting alumnae" of the Alabama school's Beta Mu chapter "moved quickly to address the offense".

"As a Alabama Alpha Phi member I am mortified and disgusted with Harley Barber and her ignorant remarks".

"I don't know what to do and I feel awful", Barber said.

Asked if she considered the advice from one of her friends who suggested that Barber not post the videos, Barber replied: "No, I'm an idiot. But I just saved the f-king n--r by shutting that water off", she continues. She confirmed to the Post that she had been expelled from the University of Alabama and is heading home to New Jersey.

"I feel terrible. I feel so, so bad and I am so sorry..."

"I did something really, really bad", Barber told The Post.

The school, which had a delayed opening until noon Wednesday due to weather, did not respond to inquiries regarding Barber's status as a student.
