Louisiana State University at Baton Rouge is investigating and its Delta Kappa Epsilon fraternity is apologizing for a sign that the fraternity displayed in advance of Saturday night's football game between LSU and Kent State University, The Times-Picayune reported. The sign referenced the 1970 killings at Kent State, and said: "Getting Massacred Is Nothing New to Kent St.," A statement from the university said: "LSU certainly does not condone this insensitive behavior and poor judgment by the Delta Kappa Epsilon fraternity,” Ernie Ballard, director of media at the university. “LSU officials have spoken with the fraternity and believe that the students now understand the gravity of their actions. The students have issued a formal apology to Kent State University. LSU is also working with local and national DKE leaders in an effort to prevent this type of behavior in the future."
