Oregon Football Player Kicked Off Team For Facebook Status
Wide receiver Jamere Holland was dismissed from the The Oregon Ducks football program after making “questionable” remarks on his Facebook status.
The coach for the team Chip Kelly made the announcement Sunday saying that Holland was dismissed for violating team rules.
While not going into specifics, he did hint at the player's Facebook status as the culprit.
"I won't get into the specifics, but you're smart enough to figure it out."
Holland went on a Facebook rant after team linebacker Kristian Kiko Alonso was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence.
Trying to defend his friend who he believed was kicked off the team for the incident, Holland wrote
"How you Fawking kick kinko off the team on some weak Shyte. ... n*ggas constantly faded he slipped up but I've been slippn up, and I'm still here...that Shyte is weak as Fawk, weak Shyte , quote me."
After getting backlash for the first statement he posted again saying,
“Chilln thinking of another status to Fawk with the readers heads, I wish I could block whites as friends and only have blacks LOL, cause apparently I'm misunderstood."
His last status read,
"For the record I'm not a racist."
Kristian Kiko Alonso was not kicked off the team and will maintain his position.
SMH....you really have to watch what you say on these public forums.
