Thursday Quickies: Addressing Fan Misconduct Edition

New, 66 comments

Mitch Barnhart said there will be consequences for the woman who was caught on camera using a racial slur

After last night’s game, a video began to circulate of a woman launching a verbal tirade against Tennessee fans at Rupp Arena, using racial slurs.

Of course, once the video made it to Twitter, most people condemned the actions of the woman and called on the university to take action.

Based on tweets from UK Athletic Director Mitch Barnhart, it seems like they are doing just that.

Here’s the tweet thread from Barnhart:

Props to Mitch Barnhart and the University of Kentucky. There is absolutely no place for anything like this ANYWHERE. Although the woman has apologized, actions still have consequences and it will be interesting to see what comes of this next.

I still believe in this team, and you should too.
