An angry Penn State fan sent a nasty letter to one of the school’s football players, telling the defensive back to cut his “awful” hair.
Antonio Shelton, a senior defensive tackle for the Nittany Lions, shared a photo on Twitter of the letter and said one of his teammates received it. The letter was addressed to “Jonathan” and mentioned dreadlocks. The only Jonathan on the team is Jonathan Sutherland, who has dreadlocks. Here’s the letter:
One of my teammates got this. Explain to me how this isn’t racist. pic.twitter.com/Qms1F6DEEP— Antonio Shelton (@_groovy55) October 7, 2019
The fan starts by saying how he misses clean-cut athletes from his day. Then he calls Sutherland’s hair “awful” and said the dreadlocks look “disgusting” and “not attractive.”
