Students, faculty and community members alike slapped back on Twitter at comments made by Purdue President Mitch Daniels during a hallway conversation outside Wednesday night's PSG senate meeting.

One person tweeted an image of a typed response to the events of Wednesday night, sans signature. The response detailed the student's reaction to the 

"creature" comment.

Other Twitter users thanked the student who called Daniels out for using the term "creatures" in reference to an African American student.

Several users even called for the president to resign amid the controversy.
