Proving that stupidity and compassion don’t take days off, racists had no problem exposing themselves to the world Sunday night when President Obama‘s appearance in Newtown, Connecticut to pay tribute to the victims of the Sandy Hook elementary school shootings, interrupted the Sunday night game between the San Francisco 49ers and New England Patriots on NBC.
As you can see below from the screenshots, the profanity-laced tweets included racial epithets against the president. In fact, one of the racially charged tweets can from a University of North Alabama (UNA) football player who is no longer on the team, according to officials.
Bradley Patterson tweeted, “Take that n****r off the TV, we want to watch some football.”
After Patterson’s tweet, Mark Linder, the school’s Athletic Director, sent out his own saying, “Thx 2 everyone who brought to our attention. @UNAAthletics does not condone. He is no longer a member of the team.”
Below is Patterson’s Tweet and several others., among many.
