Sports has a way of bringing out the worst in people, sometimes it actually exposes them for who they really are.
Such was the case when the Kentucky Wildcats took on the Tennessee Volunteers on Tuesday.
The un-ranked Vols defeated the 6th-ranked Wildcats on their floor and the fan base was not happy.
One Vols fan decided to troll a fan who was leaving before the game was over, but she responded with a racial slur in retaliation.
That fan will face consequences for her actions:
Via USA Today:
“An incident like the one that took place last night at Rupp Arena has no place at the University of Kentucky,” UK athletics director Mitch Barnhart tweeted Wednesday night. “There will be consequences for this unacceptable behavior and they will be announced once communicated to the offending party.
“While the person in question is not a season ticket holder, there are still ways to ensure those actions are not repeated at future UK events. We also have reached out to the patron who was the victim of this abusive and inexcusable language to apologize personally. That’s not who we are as an athletics department.”
Ethan Williams, a Tennessee fan, posted a video to Twitter after the game showing a Kentucky fan yelling a racial slur at him as she left the Rupp Arena stands.”
The Vols won the game 81-73.
