Letter to the Editor: Twitter messages not indicative of Florida State fans
On behalf of the entire Florida State University community, we would like to send our most sincere regrets about the deplorable messages that were sent via social media by one of our students.
In no way does this individual represent our university. As soon as we received notice about these very inappropriate messages, we contacted the student and his account and messages were deleted and appropriate action was taken.
In the meantime, he did much harm to the recipients of the messages and OU, as well as to Florida State and our reputation.
Last fall when you hosted the Seminoles in Norman, all who attended returned to Tallahassee with stories of your gracious hospitality. We hope to return the favor with warm, Southern hospitality this weekend.
We look forward to welcoming you to Tallahassee, and please accept our best wishes for a great game on Saturday on the field of play.
