The Citadel Is Investigating Its Ticket Office Calling Clay Travis A Racist

Videos by OutKick

You just never know who or what hates OutKick founder Clay Travis.

The Citadel tells OutKick that it’s investigating a Twitter direct message sent to Clay from the school’s ticket office calling him a “racist.”

“You’re the one talking about racism?” someone with access to the school’s account wrote in the fiery direct message. “You are a racist you know that right?” the account fired back.

In a brief statement to OutKick, The Citadel says it’s aware of the issue and that “it’s being investigated.”

“The message sent goes against the values of our institution,” the military college in Charleston, S.C., added, before going even further with its message via two follow-up tweets.

“The Citadel does not tolerate the behavior seen in the direct messages to Clay Travis. Neither The Citadel nor its Athletics Department is accusing Clay Travis of being a racist; racism is entirely inconsistent with our core values of honor, duty and respect.

“The Citadel is an inclusive institution, open to people from all walks of life and with varying points of view. We are actively looking to look into the matter and will take all appropriate actions when we discover the source of the messages.”

While it’s one thing for Clay to get into heated battles with the likes of maniac Keith Olbermann and woke snowflake Stan Van Gundy over COVID, it’s another for a college ticket office to start labeling the guy a “racist” via direct message.

From our research, it appears The Citadel’s ticket office is the very first of its kind to take aim at the talking head. And probably the first ticket office to delete its Twitter account.

  1. I’m beginning to see there are a lot of woke jerkoffs in South Carolina, the least of which is Lindsay Graham. Graham, in my opinion is like McConnell, they are sabotaging Republicans running for office.

  2. ONE Cowardly Little Weasel in a college’s ticket office should not indict that institution or the state in which it is located. … Chill folks … let The Citadel investigate … like BYU did ….
    And Clay certainly does not need OutKick readers defending his socio-cultural POVs.
