Audrey Godlewski is a sophomore student at the University of Wisconsin–Madison in Madison, Dane County, Wisconsin, United States. Students at the university are demanding for her expulsion.
Godlewski graduated from West Salem High School in West Salem, Wisconsin where she played volleyball and soccer. She is a certified nursing assistant at Lakeview Assisted Living in Fond Du Lac, Wisconsin.
In April 2023, a video of Godlewski using racist slurs while another woman can be heard laughing in response surfaced on various social media platforms. The video was recorded by the latter, who is allegedly her fellow UW-Madison sophomore Eva Treu.
Based in Burnsville, Minnesota, USA, Treu went to Apple Valley Senior High School in Apple Valley, Minnesota. She is studying health promotion and health equity at UW-Madison.
Treu was a courtesy clerk at Lunds & Byerlys in Burnsville from September 2017 to March 2019 and a teaching assistant at Woodpark Montessory & Child Care from March 2019 to March 2020. She was a preschool teacher at Headline Dance Center in Burnsville from September 2019 to August 2021.
The video in question starts with Godlewski saying she wants to die. She goes on to say she would haunt “every f—–g N—-r who f—–g did” her wrong and force them to “pick f—–g cotton” until their bodies “dry out because of how much cotton they’re picking” for her.
Neither Godlewski nor Treu was mentioned in UW-Madison’s statement released on May 1, 2023. Aware of a video recently posted to social media that contains deeply harmful and offensive racist slurs and references, the university said its Dean of Students Office is gathering additional information, collecting bias reports and offering support to affected students and employees.
“UW–Madison strives to create a campus where everyone feels they belong,” the statement read. “While the university can’t limit what students and employees post to their personal social media accounts and can’t take action against posts that are not unlawful, racist slurs do not represent or reflect UW–Madison values around creating an inclusive community.”
