Racist Tweets Directed at Obama During Newtown Speech

Last night’s Sunday Night Football game between the San Francisco 49ers and New England Patriots was interrupted in the first quarter by President Barack Obama giving a speech at the Newtown memorial for victims of the Sandy Hook shooting.

Football fans did not appreciate the interruption and instead erupted in numerous racist and offensive tweets on Twitter.

One Division II, University of North Alabama player tweeted, “Take that nigger off the tv, we wanna watch football!”

Later in the evening, UNA Athletic Director Mark Linder tweeted that this player was no longer a part of the team.

“Thx 2 everyone who brought the inappropriate tweet to our attention. @UNAAthletics does not condone. He is no longer a member of the team,” Linder tweeted.
