Oklahoma Suspends Receiver Jaz Reynolds For Tweets Joking About Texas Shooting

Oklahoma sophomore wide receiver Jaz Reynolds has been suspended indefinitely from the football team for some comments on Twitter following the shooting in Texas yesterday morning.

“Hey everyone in Austin, tx…….kill yourself #evillaugh.”

“Everyone in austin, tx disregard that last tweet….y’all will mess around n do it lmao.”

Bob Stoops issued the following statement today.

“Because of his insensitive remarks on Twitter relative to Tuesday’s tragedy in Austin, we have suspended Jaz Reynolds from our team indefinitely. Our rivalry with Texas will not come at the expense of dignity and respect. We have great concern for what happened in Austin and I am incredibly disappointed that someone connected with our team would react so callously. We have taken immediate action and I hope by doing so have illustrated how seriously we view this matter.”

Reynolds had not played this season. Sounds like he’ll have plenty more time for Tweeting now.
