According to Lostletterman.com, during a campus production of “The Laramie Project” on Tuesday night, around 20 Ole MIss players were in attendance and accused of using derogatory slurs and heckling cast and audience members. The play is about an openly gay male, Matthew Shepard, who was murdered in Wyoming in 1998, so you can imagine what the players were saying. They were there reportedly as part of a requirement for a freshman-level theater course in which they are enrolled. The play’s director, Rory Ledbetter, told The Daily Mississippian...
quote:Per a request by the athletic department, an undisclosed player apologized to the cast on behalf of his teammates.
“The football players were certainly not the only audience members that were being offensive last night,” “But they were definitely the ones who seemed to initiate others in the audience to say things, too. It seemed like they didn’t know that they were representing the university when they were doing these things.”
