It’s 2017. I’d hope that after thousands of years, the human would have advanced enough to learn from other’s catastrophic mistakes and ill-advised social media usage, but it appears we may have a few more years to go before the most intellectually challenged among us are able to acquire this ability.
A Washington D.C. magazine editor took to Facebook and Twitter this morning to put a former University of Alabama fraternity member on blast after their match on Tinder resulted in some unexpected, incredibly racist messages.
A man named Kyle, later identified as a suspended (and now terminated) University of Alabama Sigma Pi member, came out swinging with a pair of future-killing messages before delivering a knockout blow on himself.
Kyle: Is the black guy in your picture your boyfriend?
Kyle: Ain’t no one like a n****r lovin white girl
Emi: Hi Kyle! I’m so sorry to be the one to have to tell you this, but your use of the n-word is actually a facet of racial violence! Also, there are no black men in any of my profile pictures.
Kyle: I come from Alabama where the only place we like our n****rs is hangin from trees
Kyle: Let me guess you also think Hillary Clinton is good for America and the f*ggots queerosexuals should have rights?
Kyle: #fakenews #deplorable
Those one-of-a-kind, dumbass comments landed Kyle on the street as soon as Sigma Pi’s national headquarters found out about his misdeeds. They quickly followed up with a Twitter reply of their own.
The University of Alabama has also opened a disciplinary investigation into the incident.
I’m the last one to call for censorship or overt political correctness, but my God, Kyle. It’s 2017. Get it together..
