Kent State responds to LSU game day sign mocking massacre


quote:

BATON ROUGE, LA (NBC33) — A game day sign outside an LSU fraternity united fans of opposing teams in the hours before kickoff. Unfortunately, it was due to feelings of outrage.

“I’m a student at Kent State and in a fraternity. This is disgraceful, insulting, and in poor taste,” one fan wrote on the NBC33 Facebook page.

The same sentiment were echoed by hundreds of Tiger fans in an endless stream of online comments.

“Not an LSU fan’s way,” an LSU fan wrote. “Very disrespectful. We don’t act like that in Louisiana, at least decent folks don’t.”

The sign in question was placed outside the entrance of the Delta Kappa Epsilon fraternity. It said, “Getting massacred is nothing new to Kent St.”

The image circulated the Internet shortly after NBC33 News posted the story. On Sunday, Sept. 15, Eric Mansfield, Executive Director of Media Relations at Kent State University, released an official statement.

“May 4, 1970 was a watershed moment for the country and especially the Kent State family. We lost four students that day while nine others were wounded and countless others were changed forever.

“We take offense to the actions of a few people last night who created an inappropriate sign and distracted from the athletic contest on the field.

“Our new May 4 Visitor Center, which opened less than a year ago, is another way in which Kent State is inviting the country to gain perspective on what happened 43 years ago and apply its meaning to the future.

“We would invite those who created the sign to visit our campus and learn more about the event which forever changed Kent State and America.”

A representative with LSU told NBC33 News that the LSU Police Department was contacted on Saturday, Sept. 14 regarding the sign. Officers were dispatched to the fraternity house and asked them to remove the sign. They complied with the request and it is no longer hanging.

I'm usually the last person to be offended by the actions of dumb college kids, but this one was over the line. DKE deserved the flak they got for this stunt.

I'm offended by a lot of crap that comes from Big Azz Sharpton's mouth but he has a right to say them.

Same applies here.

People are so dumb. The worst thing you can do is give this attention and get upset about it. They are trolling for attention. If people are really upset about it they should just brush it off and ignore it. Not give it media attention. All that does is encourage more of this.

People need to learn to try to not be offended at everything they can and realize 20 year olds are immature.

So. Dumb.

Just answer me this. What law was being broken that the cops had to be sent out?

The only law I see being broken is the restriction of free speech

Some people remember dropping bombs on Japan but make jokes about that. 40years is enough recovery time
