I have exchanged texts with Hugh Freeze regarding today’s story in the Daily Mississippian which reports that “an estimated 20 football players” were disrespectful and disruptive at an Ole Miss theatre department production.
According to the DM the play is about an openly gay male in Laramie, Wyo., who was murdered.
The story quotes a theatre faculty member who called behavior by the football players, mostly freshmen, “offensive.”
Freeze said within the last hour that he was just beginning to look into the matter. He also said he had learned that there was “a lot of laughter by all students in attendance.”
