Harley Barber's mother does not want people to think that she hugs her daughter and tells her that everything will be fine.

In fact, Barber's mother agrees with the University of Alabama's decision to expel the 19-year-old freshman for posting two videos of his racist rant on his Instagram account. The videos, which were recorded and posted on Twitter by another user, became viral and angered people on their campus and across the country.

"I agree with the punishment," Barber's mother, Jill Barbera, told NJ.com. [19659004] "This is not a reflection of how she was raised, it's degrading and it breaks my heart," said Barber's mother. "I hope someone can see this and learn, I do not want anyone to feel what I feel."
