FSU Coach Willie Taggart Used In Racist Lynching Meme
Saying that there are racist college football fans in Florida is like saying there are Bibles in churches, drunks in bars, and white people inside the Abercrombie & Fitch store.
That said, the state never ceases to amaze us with their never-ending stream of f**kery. According to ESPN, Florida State University is investigating a racist meme depicting their Black football coach Willie Taggart being lynched with a variation of the now-classic Nike Colin Kaepernick ad as a caption:
“Believe in Something Even If It Means Sacrificing Your Rep.”
School president John Thrasher released a statement condemning the post and supporting Taggart.
“A recent racist social media post aimed at our football coach is ignorant and despicable,” Thrasher said in a statement released on Florida State’s Twitter account. “I speak for the entire FSU community in expressing our disgust and extreme disappointment, and I am glad the state attorney is investigating.
“Coach Taggart has our full support and as true Seminoles know, he is a respected member of the FSU family.”
