Police Investigating ISU Fan Death Threat
The reactions of some Iowa State fans to the Cyclones’ hard-fought OT loss to Kansas on Monday night are some of the ugliest we’ve seen in a long time. If you thought that the middle-aged ISU fan charging at Bill Self was bad, trust us – there’s a whole lot worse.
Two other Cyclones fans, Stephen Koithan and Jordan Sitzmann, took to Twitter to drop n-bombs in reference to the Jayhawks’ Elijah Johnson — who scored 39 points on Monday — and issue a death threat to the Kansas team. Below is that string of tweets in all its infamy.
Both Koithan’s and Sitzmann’s accounts have been deactivated, and now ISU police are investigating the threat they made.
“It’s unfortunate but we know it certainly doesn’t represent the Iowa State community and its fans,” KU associate athletic director Jim Marchiony told The Wichita Eagle on Wednesday. “We’re sure Iowa State is handling it appropriately.”
Now the onus is on Cyclones fans to handle losses more appropriately.
