The Texas State University Student Government impeached its president Monday night.

Connor Clegg first faced backlash for an Instagram post which was criticized for being racist and offensive.

He's also facing criticism for trying to cut funding to the University Star, the school's newspaper.

The previous attempt impeach Clegg last week did not proceed because a quorum was not established. That sparked a student sit-in for three days on the fourth floor of the LBJ Student Center. For months, students have been pressuring for his resignation and impeachment with a petition with over 2,600 signatures.

Clegg does have the option to appeal the decision.
