Bradley Patterson, an uninvited walk-on long snapper for the North Alabama University football team, made a very unwise decision to post a blatantly racist tweet during President Obama's speech at the Newtown memorial ceremony honoring the many victims whose lives were taken during the tragic Sandy Hook shooting.  Mr. Patterson was upset that President Obama's speech interfered with his ability to view the NBC Sunday Night football game between the 49ers and New England Patriots, and he let his frustration be publicly known on Twitter.  

He flat out wrote on his Twitter account, "Take that n*gger off the tv, we wanna watch football!"  Mr. Patterson must've forgotten that everyone is watching you on Twitter these days.  He has since been kicked off of the UNA football team.  Mark Linder, the UNA Athletic Director, announced the news on Twitter.  See the tweets above.
