LSU's football team handily defeated Kent State at Tiger Stadium yesterday, 45-13. Off the field, however, the brothers of LSU's Delta Kappa Epsilon fraternity thought it was a good idea to hang this sign taunting Kent State about the 1970 Kent State massacre. It reads, “Getting massacred is nothing new to Kent St," referencing when the Ohio National Guard opened fire on a group of 2,000 student protestors, wounding nine and killing four.
“May 4, 1970 was a watershed moment for the country and especially the Kent State family. We lost four students that day while nine others were wounded and countless others were changed forever. We take offense to the actions of a few people last night who created an inappropriate sign and distracted from the athletic contest on the field."
This is nothing new for LSU DKEs. Last year they hung a sign on their house that read "Like the Batman movie premiere, we’re starting off this season with a bang!"
Stay classy, LSU DKEs.
