A viral video depicts an unidentified University of Alabama college football fan making racist comments and homophobic slurs to Texas Longhorn players following the Crimson Tide’s defeat Saturday.
In the video, the fan — or possibly fans — can be heard calling three different Black Texas players “f—-ts” and telling them to go back to the “projects.”
The players seen in the video included X’vion Brice, Jelani Mcdonald, B.J. Allen Jr. and Quintrevion Wisner.
According to Fox News Digital, Wisner’s mother, Angie Wisner posted on X (formerly Twitter) regarding the video. Angie added she and other parents of Texas players experienced harassment during the game.
“The fact my son down there and they saying go back to the projects really just saddens my heart that as his mother no matter how old he had to listen to that!” wrote Angie. “Love you son! But the parents went through this all night! Beer cans thrown at us, water bottles, spit! Disgrace.”

The University of Alabama issued a statement following the video, condemning the behavior and saying that it is not representative of the university’s values.
“We are disgusted by reports of vile language and inappropriate behavior Saturday night. To be clear, we condemn this behavior and it will not be tolerated in our venues. It is not representative of UA or our values. We expect all attendees to act with class and respect towards others.
“Fans are strongly encouraged to report issues to our security resources on-site. Gameday and delayed reports are appropriately addressed and anyone found to be in violation of our rules and expectations will be promptly removed and may be banned from future events.”
