Photo: Ohio State T-Shirt Makes Light Of Penn State Sandusky Scandal
PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – A photo of a t-shirt mocking the Penn State / Jerry Sandusky scandal has made the rounds on Twitter and Facebook over the last two days.
The shirt, apparently designed for Ohio State fans, says “I’d rather shower at Penn State, than cheer for the [Michigan] Wolverines.”
The photo of the shirt was uncovered by Jezebel, and is not sold by Ohio State University.
“We recently became aware that this T-shirt design is circulating on social media,” Gayle Saunders, OSU assistant vice president of media relations, wrote in an e-mail to USA Today. “This is not a University sanctioned T-shirt, and we have no knowledge of where it originated. It is unacceptable and appalling that someone would make light of a tragedy in this manner.”
At this point, there is still no clarity as to where the shirt originated, or where it is available.
