“Especially considering recent events in South Carolina concerning the Confederate flag, this photo may be considered offensive and possibly even threatening to some of our community members,” said Chancellor R. Bowen Loftin in a statement. “MU officials do not condone any activities that could threaten the safety of our community.” The photo was tweeted on Sunday by Frat Scenery, a Twitter account that posts photos of universities around the country. According to the Maneater the photo was taken around the time of a September 8, 2012 football game between the University of Georgia and the University of Missouri.
“Three of the five men in the photo are wearing Bulldogs apparel and a University of Georgia flag flies alongside the Confederate Navy Jack,” writes Quinn Malloy for the university publication. Loftin did not specify how the flag might pose a threat. As noted by Infowars.com people who own and display Confederate flags on their own property have been threatened. FULL REPORT
