How Did "Language That Could Be Perceived as...Homophobic" Wind Up in Georgetown's Ticket Booklet?


A photo in the Georgetown University men's basketball season ticket package includes what looks like a gay slur. Making the matter worse is the fact that the photo in question is printed right on the ticket package's cover. Georgetown's athletic director apologized last week for the error, which he said he didn't notice until someone else pointed it out, the Georgetown Voice reports. The photo, taken during a men's basketball game last year, shows a hot-pink sign aimed at former Duke star J.J. Reddick, calling him "RIDICULOUSLY GAY JJ."
