Football player reportedly receives Instagram message filled with racist slurs


An SMU football player is claiming to be the recipient of a racist message.

Kevin Thomas, a junior receiver for the Mustangs, posted a screenshot on Twitter Monday of a direct message he said he received on Instagram. The message contained multiple racial slurs.

A screenshot of the message Kevin Thomas received.

“What I’m dealing with here at @SMU,” Thomas tweeted.

SMU replied to Thomas’ tweet, saying that the alleged sender, Katharine Allen, was not a student at the university.

The Instagram account appears to be fake.

The account was posing as a member of Tri Delta, but several of the sorority’s members said that no one named Katharine Allen belonged to the sorority.

One further said that the images on the account appeared to have been pulled off of the internet.

Thomas has yet to comment on the matter, outside of the Twitter post.
