History seems to always repeat itself when it comes to the evil and wickedness that plagues this nation. A group of University of Alabama students thought hanging a banner with the image “Finish What Katrina Started” towards their rivals at LSU was funny.
Not only was it disturbing it was insensitive and just downright reprehensible that making a mockery of people who lost lives, property and family members is a laughing matter.
See what the Grio reported:
An image of a tasteless football banner has gone viral after Alabama students hung the words “Finish what Katrina started” at their off-campus apartment building before a game against LSU.
The image was posted online by Travon Williams along with the caption: “This (is) why I hate Alabama Football fans and I hope LSU beat them by like 30.”
The University of Alabama was quick to condemn the banner, calling it “inappropriate and offensive.”
The school continued, in a statement released on Twitter: “UA is appalled that anyone would display a banner with such an inappropriate and offensive statement. It’s our understanding that the banner was hung at an off-campus apartment complex and it has been removed.”
Others affiliated with the university also strongly condemned the banner. Sean Landry, the editor-in-chief of the Alabama student newspaper “The Crimson White,” also spoke out against the banner, calling it “disgusting.”
“I’m from Mobile. I had family in New Orleans,” Landry wrote on Twitter. “I live in Tuscaloosa, where my brother was on April 27. This stuff will always be off limits,” he added, referencing a tornado that devastated the area in 2011.
