A Boston College soccer player has been suspended for her tweets about Penn State and Jerry Sandusky.
Boston College is suspending the women’s soccer team’s second-leading scorer after she fired off tweets about the Jerry Sandusky scandal ahead of an NCAA tournament game against Penn State.
Stephanie McCaffery, who has since deleted her Twitter handle, posted the following tweets yesterday:
“I wonder if well get into the visitors locker room at Penn state…”
“Raping at penn state to getting raped in state penn…#beatPennState #santouchsky #legggooeags”
“Sandusky used to cart the kids around in this#handydeliverytrucks twitter.com/stephyymac/sta…”
“@patricevettori #sandusky’s house tonight! @kristiemewie@kcmosun twitter.com/stephyymac/sta…”
Boston College safety Sean Sylvia shared McCaffrey’s tweets on his own account.
“@stephyymac is literally making me die with all her tweets#makingmyweek #beatPennState #headonaswivel #sanduskyville”
Sylvia’s account has also been shut down.
Boston College Athletic Director Brad Bates said in a statement that McCaffrey exercised “very poor judgment and exhibited insensitivity” on her Twitter account.
“This type of behavior is not tolerated among our student-athletes,” Bates’ statement reads. “Miss McCaffrey has been suspended from the team and will not participate in Friday’s game.”
