The LSU Tigers went out and handily defeated Ken State on the football field this past weekend, but that wasn't the biggest story. As the Inquisitr reported on Sept. 17, 2013, an LSU fraternity hung a banner outside of their house stating, "Getting massacred is nothing new to Kent State," and that has taken the focus away from anything done on a football field.
The banner hung by the Delta Kappa Epsilon fraternity at LSU mocked a shooting that took place at Kent State University back in 1970. An apology banner has already been hung up by the LSU fraternity.
"We would like to apologize to Kent State for our inappropriate sign."
It is possible that even with the apology, students involved with the hanging of the sign could face some sort of disciplinary action. The school has already been made aware of the matter and it has been reported that the Dean of Students Office and Student Life are looking into it.
“LSU certainly does not condone this insensitive behavior and poor judgment by the Delta Kappa Epsilon fraternity. 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.”
The very same LSU fraternity already made headlines earlier in September when LSU played the University of Alabama-Birmingham and hung a banner for that game as well. It read, "LSU vs. UAB it's gonna be a gas. Syriasly."
It appears as if the students in the fraternity don't really seem to think a lot before they speak or hang up a sign. Chances are the media attention they're getting is going to put an end to it.
