    Thumbs down University of CO President says *C* Word is "term of endearment"

    BOULDER - In a sworn statement, University of Colorado President Elizabeth Hoffman said she has heard a four-letter word used toward women as a "term of endearment."

    The comment comes from Hoffman's latest sworn testimony in connection with a federal lawsuit against the university. 9NEWS received a copy of the passage in question from the university after sources both outside and inside CU told us about it.

    The suit was filed by women who say they were sexually assaulted by CU football players and recruits.

    A lawyer for one of the women asked Hoffman about former CU kicker Katie Hnida being called the "c- word" by a teammate.

    That player was later disciplined by coach Gary Barnett for making the remark.

    In the deposition, Hoffman was asked whether the "c-word" is "filthy and vile."

    She said she knows the word is a swear word, but "It is all in the context of what--of how it is used and when it is used."

    She was asked, "Can you indicate any polite context in which that word would be used?"

    Hoffman answered, "Yes, I've actually heard it used as a term of endearment."
