Detroit Lions fan who posted racist Snapchat surrenders season tickets


In another example of social media combining with bad judgement, a Detroit Lions fan is surrendering his season tickets after creating a racist Snapchat post. The Detroit Lions have taken action against a season-ticket holder who posted a racially charged video on social media directed at a pair of fans who sat through the national anthem prior to last Sunday’s game at Ford Field.

After an investigation, including a conversation with the person who posted the video, he is no longer a season-ticket holder and he isn’t welcome in the stadium for future events.

The video, posted on Snapchat, had a voiced-over suggestion that the sitting fans leave the country. The photo was captioned “stupid (expletive).”

Is this setting the tone for the way future matters of a similar nature are going to be handled by sporting franchises?
