Charlene Sumlin, who is married to Texas A&M University’s embattled football coach Kevin Sumlin, on Thursday shared a threatening letter that someone had mailed to her husband, calling out the racist jerk who sent it.
“Did it occur to you that a child may open it?” she tweeted.
The Sumlins’ daughter, Shelby, also responded on social media, writing, “Imagine being a kid & reading this bs abt your dad.”
Imagine being a kid & reading this bs abt your dad. Things "fans" say gets taken personal by more than just the coach. Humanity isn't hard. https://t.co/ueLMcycL9e?ncid=edlinkushpmg00000313— Shelby Sumlin (@ShelbySumlin) September 8, 2017
Pressure comes with the territory for a college football coach, but bigotry should not.
In a joint statement, Texas A&M’s president, Michael Young, and its athletic director, Scott Woodward, condemned the “disgusting” letter, saying they “will not accept this inexcusable act of hate.”
