BATON ROUGE - LSU's Athletics department says it's taking "immediate and deliberate" action after a video surfaced showing a student-athlete using a racial slur.

The video was shared on Twitter late Friday and whipped up outrage online, with many identifying the person in the video as a tennis player at the university.

The department released a brief statement Saturday saying it was taking "steps" to address the situation.

The university did not immediately say what discipline the student might face.
