Louisville cheerleaders suspended for election posts


Following the 2016 presidential election, multiple Louisville cheerleaders have been placed under suspension for some questionable tweets that were sent out after Donald Trump won the Electoral College to become president-elect, according to WHAS-11.

“As the Head Spirit Coach and Spirit Coordinator, I am very troubled and concerned about the exchanges that took place in social media late last evening involving one or more of our student athletes,” Louisville head spirit coach and spirit coordinator Todd Sharp said.

“We have worked very hard to build a successful and incredibly diverse spirit program here at the University.  These conversations over the last day are not an accurate representation of our program, our values, or our coaching staff. We are investigating this matter and will take appropriate action upon the completion of such.“

WHAS-11 shared photos of two of the tweets in question, which came from cheerleader Brynn Baker, who has since deleted her account.


The comments did not go unnoticed, either, as Cardinals linebacker James Hearns sent out a tweet condemning Baker’s comments.

No other cheerleader has been identified in the incident.

Be careful what you tweet, kids.
