LSU Fraternity, After 3 Banners That Offend, Apologizes

September 15, 2014

The Delta Kappa Epsilon chapter at Louisiana State University at Baton Rouge has apologized for a "game day banner" that offended many, continuing a pattern of the house hanging controversial banners, The Times-Picayune reported. This year the banner mocked Michael Sam, the openly gay football player, with a banner that said "Michael isn't the Only Sam Getting the D Tonight." Last year, the same fraternity apologized to Kent State University for a banner saying "Getting Massacred Is Nothing New to Kent St." And the year before the same fraternity had a banner, just weeks after the Aurora, Colorado shootings, that said "Like the Batman premiere, we're starting off with a bang!"
