By comparison, his tweet seems rather harmless in the long line of offensive tweets, in general. Referring to her as 'Fat Albert" and commenting on her weight is never a good thing, and calling her a cheater, also not a good thing. Not sure though where any of this can be defined as racist... We have far worse comments made on this board towards other posters than this tweet.inthescoop wrote: ↑Thu Jan 07, 2021 4:45 pm Former offensive line coach under Whipple's era, Chris Malone, fired at Chattanooga for racist tweets.

"Congratulations to the state GA and Fat Albert @staceyabrams because you have truly shown America the true works of cheating in an election, again!!! Enjoy the buffet Big Girl! You earned it!!! Hope the money is good, still not governor!"
Poor taste, sure. Inappropriate for a coach who is leading and shaping young men, of course. But racist? I'm not sure about that...
I also share the opinion that this really isn't relevant to UMass football or, in general. Interesting to note maybe, but relevant, not at all.
