Two Twitter punks who fired off racist rants about Washington Capitals hero Joel Ward are facing possible disciplinary action from their schools while another who apologized said he’s getting death threats.
A spokeswoman for New Hampshire’s Franklin Pierce University said a student is facing disciplinary action for firing off an expletive-laden tweet using “vile racial slurs.”
“We consider the racism, ignorance, lack of inclusiveness and poor sportsmanship reflected in the student’s actions to be a matter of grave concern, and we are taking immediate action,” the school’s statement said.
The student apologized in a tweet last night, saying: “I was in a state that had me frustrated. I am not racist and never will be. Sorry.”
