Really, Diogenes, you aren't appalled by what they wrote?

Freedom of speech protects speech we dislike or with which we disagree. If freedom of speech protected only speech we like, there would be no freedom of speech. The greatest strength of our country is our tolerance and protection of offensive or repulsive speech.

Freedom of speech only applies to the government. The private university can do what they want to the wrestlers.

"What they wrote" implies this was published. This was a private group chat. One of the wrestlers is African American and I am sure there are various ethnicities and religions covered through the team.

There was no bullying or hate crime. It was ignorant immature humor that all of us have participated in during private conversations with our friends/teammates.

Being outlandish, brash, crass and painting exaggerated distorted caricatures in order to get a laugh is the bases of 90% of our comedic performers. This kids are sitting around a locker room and busty chops unfortunately they werent smart enough to realize a private chat can potentially not be private.

This is not a Richie Incognito situation where bullying was occurring.
