A college student claims she was booted out of her sorority for posting a ‘pro-Trump’ video on TikTok that featured 'All Lives Matter' signs.
Jaycie Barton, who attended the University of Texas at San Antonio, says she was kicked out of Zeta Tau Alpha (ZTA), for expressing her political opinions online.
She landed in hot water for her sorority sisters after posting an eight-second clip of her at a Trump demonstration where All Lives Matter messages could be seen.
Supporters could also be seen brandishing ‘Trump 2020’ pickets, MAGA signs and pro-police ‘Back the Blue’ posters.
Barton was initially reprimanded for the video in September, according to the Washington Examiner, when the sorority said that the All Lives Matter is “extremely hurtful to our sisters” and very “unsisterly”.
A charging statement from the sorority continued: "ZTA stands for Black Lives Matter and the statement All Lives Matter goes against ZTA's belief."
Barton said the sorority had stripped her of her title, as risk reduction and education chairman, over the video and that she was later removed completely.

She was reportedly criticised at a hearing in September by former sisters for thwarting their efforts to be “inclusive”.
In an interview with Breitbart, Barton said: “It’s pretty clear that I do support black lives. And I don’t understand how the sorority cannot see that the word ‘all’ includes everyone.”
She added that she hadn’t joined the sorority to be a part of BLM, but was attracted by their philanthropy.

She claims that multiple members have messaged her to voice their support for her actions, but said they are too afraid to come forward.
All Lives Matter has become a slogan associated with the criticism of the Black Lives Matter movement.
Critics say ALM is reductive to the challenges that the Black Live Matter movement is dedicated to exposing.
Many believe the phrase downplays racism and shifts the focus away from the goals that BLM campaigns for.
Supporters of BLM have explained many times that the movement does not mean that black lives matter "more", but that black lives matter, too.
Despite claiming otherwise Donald Trump lost the US election to Democratic nominee Joe Biden, who will be inaugurated in January.
