K-State football players demand action after student’s George Floyd tweet

The Score

Kansas State football players won't practice, play, or meet until the university changes its policy and allows students to be dismissed after displaying any "openly racist, threatening, or disrespectful" actions toward other students, the team said in a statement on Saturday night.

The student-athletes are speaking out following a tweet from a fellow student that's sparked a wave of reaction within the school.

On Thursday – one month after George Floyd's death in police custody – student Jaden McNeil tweeted, "Congratulations to George Floyd on being drug free for an entire month!"

The football team responded Saturday after consulting students from campus organizations and from the general student body.
