TEXAS A&M COACH RECEIVES RACIST LETTER AFTER TEAM LOSES TO UCLA
Texas A&M head football coach Kevin Sumlin's wife shared a disturbing photo of racist hate mail she says was sent to their home and directed toward her husband.
Sumlin’s wife, Charlene, shared the image of the disturbing letter via Twitter which says,
"You suck as a coach! You’re a n—– and can’t win! Please get lost! or else,”
Charlene posted her reaction stating, “People of 2017: please tell me how any part of this is ok. And to the sender: did it occur to you that a child may open it? #orelseWHAT?”
The couple's daughter, Shelby, who attends Texas A&M, reacted on Twitter as well:
“Imagine being a kid & reading this bs abt your dad. Things “fans” say gets taken personal by more than just the coach. Humanity isn’t hard.”
Sumlin faced criticism after the team blew a 34-point lead, according to ESPN. After Charlene’s Twitter post, Texas A&M school president Michael Young and athletic director Scott Woodward acknowledged the letter in a statement, calling the hate mail “disgusting and threatening.”
“There is no excuse for hatred and, as a community, we will not allow the ignorance of some to intimidate any member of our community,” the statement read.
“On behalf of all Aggies, our thoughts are with Coach Sumlin and his family, and we will do all that we can to ensure their safety.”
It's an utter shame for this family to go through this ordeal. Prayers go out to them 🙏🏽
