If I were in charge of marketing for a college football team, you know what I wouldn’t do? Bring any attention to a scandal happening in my program.
Well, Vandy Football did just that today, tweeting out their new slogan: “WE DON’T NEED YOUR PERMISSION.” You know, the same Vandy Football program that’s been embroiled in a rape scandal since 2013. Whoops.
They quickly deleted the tweet, but not before I (and every other smart person with any social media sense) took a screenshot:
Could be an interesting afternoon down on West End.
UPDATE: Vandy just issued this apology on Twitter…
“We apologize for today’s tweet. It’s not a comment about sexual assault. Sex without permission is always wrong and not accepted. Sexual assault is not acceptable at Vanderbilt University, Vanderbilt Athletics and Vanderbilt Football.”
