Jerks of a feather flock together.
Emi stated that she was “shocked because those words were so vulgar and unnecessary. I screenshotted that message immediately because I was just thinking, ‘this isn’t okay, I have to do something about this.'”
She took to Twitter, posting Kyle’s Facebook page and the screenshots of his messages to her. She tagged the University of Alabama and his fraternity in the post, stating: “Just wondering how @UofAlabama and @SigmaPi & @SigmaPiAlabama are going to handle racism from their student & member. Got these today.”
The University took action the same day he sent those wild messages. They tweeted back, calling his behavior “unacceptable and not representative of UA students. We are investigating and will take appropriate action.”
The next day, the college officially stated: “We have initiated a disciplinary review and will follow due process. … UA does not condone the use of hostile or racist language, or threats of violence in any situation.”
While his school is following disciplinary action and his fraternity kicked him out (cause that definitely happened), that’s not the end of our story. Kyle had a lot of support for his hateful behavior.
Emi took to Twitter again after her university received postcards addressed to her that were rife with hate over Emi exposing the racist young man. On March 27th, she posted that she got a few postcards from a New York post office. One letter had a link to a Neo-Nazi website.
She said the anonymous person wrote, “Dear Airhead, You are a great example of a brainwashed Stepford Wife, who is educated but has no wisdom. In a time when most young men are effeminate slackers, you take down a high achieving white man who spoke his mind. Too bad your mother wasn’t pro-choice.”
