USC ended its relationship with a booster who wanted protesters shot.

After a series of tweets calling for protesters to be shot, USC has discontinued its relationship with a booster.

The booster was Marla Brown who has since deleted her Twitter account after the “abhorrent and blatantly racist” tweets were widely circulated on Sunday. Brown’s profile picture showed her taking a picture next to former Trojans receiver Michael Pittman Jr. who asked her to remove the picture.

Pittman was helpful in bringing the tweets to the attention of USC athletic director Mike Bohn who tweeted a statement that her season tickets and Trojan Athletic Fund membership have been revoked and she’s been flagged to prevent future purchases.

Brown tweeted on multiple occasions that those who were protesting police brutality in the wake of the murder of George Floyd murder in Los Angeles and Washington D.C. should be shot. Before she deleted her account, she replied to Pittman saying her tweets were made in a fit of anger.

In a time when the country has been divided and coming together is essential, it’s for leadership like Bohn has shown to root out this kind of evil and racism.

Precious USC leadership has been criticized for many things, notably, the athletic department and football team, but there should be little criticism directed at the current administration and how they’ve handled the death of George Floyd and the resulting protests of racial injustices and police brutality.

Both Bohn and USC president Carol Folt have released messages you can read below.
