East Carolina fans were not happy when their school's band members took a knee during the “The Star-Spangled Banner” prior to Saturday's game against UCF game. So during their halftime performance, the fans greeted them with boos..

ECU administration to fans: "They can take a knee and act like pathetic SJW's, but you're not allowed to boo them. Free speech and all that, guys."

Band members can express their views all they want. The university would be perfectly in their rights to ask band members, who represent ECU, to not kneel during a performance. To me this is a tacit approval of such actions and the chancellor cannot hid behind "free exchange of ideas" on this one.

why release a statement? Booing and kneeling should be rights that carry equal weight. Maybe the chancellor should shut his whore mouth and go back to his home on whore island

And the chancellor should respect the views of the fans when they boo them at halftime.

Not that I would ever be a ECU fan anyway, but if I was in that stadium I'd have walked straight to the ticket office and demanded a refund. That is some inexcusable bullshite. If they have such a problem, then just quit the band and don't play the damn anthem period! What a bunch of "look at MEEEE" horseshite.

You paid to see a football game and yet you are going to demand a refund because of some harmless protest carried out by a few band members? Makes sense.

Everyone has the right to freedom of speech, I hope ECU boosters exercise their right to not give the university another penny because of this.

I am sure the chancellor would have been as supportive had the band members been wearing Trump buttons or similar.

This. Conservative speakers get railroaded on campuses across the country because they are viewed as "disruptive", but when it is a liberal issue it is, all of a sudden, vitally important to safeguard the right to free speech.
