Player Kicked Off Team For Slur Against Obama

by at . Comments

The University of North Alabama confirms it has kicked a player off the team after he fired off a racist slur in a Tweet about President Barack Obama.

Coaches made the move after Bradley Patterson complained that Obama's Newtown speech pre-empted Sunday night's Patriots-49ers NFL contest.

University sports publicist Jeff Hodges said the school found that there’s no question the tweet was issued by Patterson, and that he used a racial slur.

Patterson joined the University of North Alabama team as a walk-on after the fourth game of this season. He has now been issued his walking papers.
