Colo. State coach suspended for calling Wash. State QB a ‘fucking faggot’

Monday, December 23, 2013

FORT COLLINS, Colo. — Colorado State defensive line coach Greg Lupfer has been suspended without pay for two weeks for using a gay slur when yelling at Washington State quarterback Connor Halliday in the New Mexico Bowl last weekend.

Athletic director Jack Graham also ordered Lupfer to undergo anger management and diversity training at his own expense.

The incident was captured by ESPN cameras right after Halliday scored a touchdown early on in the game, and although there was no audio of what he said, his lips showed him using profanities and what’s believed to be the slur.

“Fuck you, you fucking faggot,” it appears Lupfer hurled at Halliday.

Lupfer later issued an apology via CSU’s Twitter account (here and here) after video of the slur went viral:

“I am truly sorry for what I said. It was wrong, and those words do not represent who I am or what I believe in. I apologize for the embarrassment I caused for Colorado State University, this team and my family.”

Rex Fuller with the GLBT Community Center of Colorado, a gay rights group in Denver, said the comments are offensive but not shocking.

“It’s just unfortunate that that’s the first insult that many people think of,” Fuller said.

ProgressNow New Mexico executive director Pat Davis, said he commends Lupfer for the apology, but that his comments are unwelcome in New Mexico, especially after the state’s legalization of same-sex marriage just last week.

Davis said the comment is also damaging as many openly gay athletes prepare to travel to Russia for the Winter Olympics.

Lupfer issued a statement saying he was grateful to keep his job at Colorado State, and said “I am deeply sorry for my behavior, which does not represent who I am or my values.”

I’ve been truly blessed to have nothing but a supportive family, friends and fellow students around me. one day his hate, like his words will find him at a crossroad of judgement.

  86. Easy… God. A two week unpaid suspension is a big deal. We don’t have to go nuclear every time our delicate sensibilities are offended. This is an excited utterance shouted in anger. It’s ugly but it doesn’t necessarily speak to a personal homophobia. Hasn’t anyone here ever said something in anger you regret. If there is a pattern of this abuse, then yeah, he should be fired. This is a tempest In a teapot.

  93. How is cursing and screaming and calling this coach all kinds of names on here any different than what he said? He said something totally offensive in an angry moment just like many of you are doing right now. Your words are just as offensive as what he said. What, it’s okay for you to do it because you are an armchair critic and he can’t because he is in a public position? That is a double standard and just because you feel you are on the ‘right’ side of history does not give you the right to do what you condemn him for. Or, we can do the flipside. If you feel you have the right to spout names, hate, cursing, then you lose your right to get pissy when someone spews the same hate back at you. You can’t have it both ways.

    Posted on Tuesday, December 24, 2013 at 1:30am
  94. Nikki, please understand that he slurred a minority to try and insult an opposing QB. He used extreme hate towards us with his words. he does not belong in a leadership role over young, impressionable minds. There is a difference between being verbally attacked because of who you are, and a response to that attack. I haven't read all of the comments, but I haven't seen any hate espoused by people in this thread that is comparable to the hate he expressed. Calling for him to be fired is not hate, but an appropriate action that any sane person would deem reasonable.

  95. Well I am not sure if LGBTQ Nation has removed some of the more vulgar comments but I was referring to ones that say things like this . . . "These stupid ass red neck bastards will never learn. Fire this fucknugget." "Fuckin D Bag" "Fire the bastard!!" Those vulgar terms and words do not specifically target minorities but I ask this, why are those words okay and what he said not okay? Why would anything think it is okay to say things like that to express opposition to what he said? How is that logical? I know calling for him to be fired is not hate. And I agree that he should have severe action to send a message that the word 'Faggot' is JUST as offensive, hateful, disgusting, and vulgar as the word 'Nigger' or 'Retard' (retard being a personal pet peeve of mine, I absolutely LOATHE when people say that word to express disgust at a situation.) I know people use those words all the time without stopping for one second to think about what they are saying and what those words actually mean and it has GOT to stop. However, the expressions I quoted are HATEFUL words, no matter if it is against a specific community or not and it makes those who use those words and terms no better than this coach.

  129. Avy Karner They did address it. No one is suggesting you excuse the behavior but there are levels. There are degrees of punishment. The danger in not being reasoned and measured in your responses Is two fold. Firstly, you quickly lose credibility. You lose support of people who would normally support you and you become tyrannical and surrender the moral high ground. Or secondly, you become despised. Remember Machiavelli. It’s better to be feared than loved but you don’t want to become hated or despised.

    There are legitimate slights to the gay community. Duck dynasty guy, Russia, Nigeria. This doesn’t rise to the level of high crimes, this isnt treason, it’s a parking ticket. Let’s move on.

  130. Firing might be a bit much, but Michael you are wrong. A slight suspension is not enough. Will it fix the problem? Probably not, but neither will ignoring like you suggest. ESPECIALLY now that so much has been in the spotlight. If something is not done, what message will be sent out to our community, or...to ALL society? That's it's OK? "Come on, everyone get all of your gay bashing out and we'll take it. But you ALL only get once to do it....we'll take it. We'll just stand idly by and do nothing...like we usually do, While each and every one of you gets it out of your system." No dude....this is wrong and you are wrong.'

  138. If he had used the “N” word he would have been fired. This is no different.

    Posted on Tuesday, December 24, 2013 at 2:35am
  139. Wow. For a coach on a opposing team to call an opposing player an F@#$%^g anything is reprehensible and he should lose his job. Addiing the faggot just made it worse. A pathetic guy and needs to go away.

    Posted on Tuesday, December 24, 2013 at 2:36am
  140. It’s stupid when people use anything associated with homosexuality as an insult. I mean, what’s bad about us?

    Posted on Tuesday, December 24, 2013 at 2:36am
  141. Offense: Calling the Wash. qb a faggot. Penality: SUSPENDED AS COACH! (: FIRST DOWN! C:

    Posted on Tuesday, December 24, 2013 at 2:45am
  142. This sounds like a violation of his religious freedom!
    That’s what we’re going to call hate speech from now on.

    Posted on Tuesday, December 24, 2013 at 2:47am
  143. I love how ppl still give words power over them…I’m a big believer that the sooner we take back words seen as hate words the faster we progress…we should all stop being so pc… Yes it was wrong but really how many can truly sit here and say we never use derogatory comments…

    Posted on Tuesday, December 24, 2013 at 2:49am
  144. Where the hell are the role models for these kids? Because he sure isn’t one

    Posted on Tuesday, December 24, 2013 at 2:49am

    Posted on Tuesday, December 24, 2013 at 2:50am
  147. And they call this shit “freedom of speech”. Bullshit, fire him.

    Posted on Tuesday, December 24, 2013 at 2:51am
  148. I wonder how this guy would feel if another coach was caught on camera mouthing something similar about this guy’s own son/daughter. Probably would have been the first person to demand the coach be fired.

    Posted on Tuesday, December 24, 2013 at 2:52am
  149. He looks like the type that struggles with his own sexuality…..Not that there is anything wrong with him if that be the case; regardless these people have to recognize they are in the spotlight they are serving as role models therefore they have to follow societies rules no discrimination through the use of derogatory comments or negative statements about a particular group. – PERIOD End of story I’m done with all this b*******.

    Posted on Tuesday, December 24, 2013 at 3:00am
  150. He should be fried

  153. Now that was mature!

    Posted on Tuesday, December 24, 2013 at 3:06am
  154. If the qb was black and the coach called him a nigger he’d have been fired in a heartbeat

    Posted on Tuesday, December 24, 2013 at 3:07am
  155. He said it doesn’t represent his values, but a wise man said “Out of the abundance of your heart, your mouth speaks.”

    Posted on Tuesday, December 24, 2013 at 3:09am
  156. Should be fired!

    Posted on Tuesday, December 24, 2013 at 3:12am

  158. Who cares

    Posted on Tuesday, December 24, 2013 at 3:15am

  164. If it doesn’t represent who he is, who made him say it?

    Posted on Tuesday, December 24, 2013 at 3:26am
  165. Just because he said it to a student he should be fired. The phrase itself only hurts those who let it. I’m gay and I think I’m starting to not like most gays because they are hypocritical.

    Posted on Tuesday, December 24, 2013 at 3:29am

    Posted on Tuesday, December 24, 2013 at 3:59am
  176. At least it’s without pay. Shit like this happens and people are suspended WITH pay, essentially… it’s a holiday. Ignorant dicks.

    Posted on Tuesday, December 24, 2013 at 4:00am
  177. Is it just me or are the moron bigots literally crawling out of the woodwork lately?

    Posted on Tuesday, December 24, 2013 at 4:00am

    Posted on Tuesday, December 24, 2013 at 4:42am
  186. What is WRONG with people. Whatever or whoever you are is your business only and others do not have the right to call you names. People shouldn’t hurt other people. What a lesson to be learned.

    Posted on Tuesday, December 24, 2013 at 4:45am
  187. So does it ever get old pointing out all the things that we’ve all seen before over and over and over and over and over again? Shouldn’t we be saying “I’ve seen this before, and alright, I’m over it”?

    Posted on Tuesday, December 24, 2013 at 4:47am
  188. Stupid CSU.

    Posted on Tuesday, December 24, 2013 at 4:47am
  189. Colorado State University is in a place to set an example. Isn’t there a policy about harassment or something? Would a professor or student be given the same leniency? I get that it’s football, but the message that I’m getting is that the sport is more important then the student.

  195. Good!!

    Posted on Tuesday, December 24, 2013 at 6:37am
  196. His face seems to have a dent in it… Most likely from being with a gay man and then being hit in the face by him, denying his lack of gay empathy lol. At least he tries queer sex guys? lol

    Posted on Tuesday, December 24, 2013 at 6:47am
  197. That guy is freaking insane! What has gotten into him?!

    Posted on Tuesday, December 24, 2013 at 6:52am
  198. This bastard should be sued for slandering.

    Posted on Tuesday, December 24, 2013 at 7:05am
  199. suspension? really? I know he might’ve family to feed, but this is not a good example for those people that want to be in his career in the future. it’s like saying, that it’s ok to say faggot coz you’re only having two weeks of leave, vacation in Hawaii maybe?

    Posted on Tuesday, December 24, 2013 at 7:07am
  200. You people are taking this way too seriously. He probably wasn’t calling him a faggot because he hates gay people or some bullshit. It’s just an insult that people use. Yeah. It sucks that that’s the word that first comes to mind, but oh well. Shit happens. I don’t think he was calling him gay or anything. Why do you fuckers overreact to everything? (And I mean most fans of this page, not gay people)

    Posted on Tuesday, December 24, 2013 at 7:11am
  201. So grateful to GLAAD, Human Rights Campaign, and other groups who work so diligently to call out the pervasive, hate filled, portrayals of our community…by seemingly leaders in the television and sports worlds….!!!! Kudos for the governing bodies for taking action to let these individuals know they need correcting….!

    Posted on Tuesday, December 24, 2013 at 7:16am
  202. dickhead///oh wait! did I offend anyone? Sorry dickheads! My bad!

    Posted on Tuesday, December 24, 2013 at 8:04am
  204. He should have been fired!

    Posted on Tuesday, December 24, 2013 at 8:49am
  205. He and Phil Robertson can have a picnic together and commiserate.

    Posted on Tuesday, December 24, 2013 at 8:52am
  206. He apologized to the university, the team and his family… but not the gay kids every where who have to put up with hearing this word way too often.

    Posted on Tuesday, December 24, 2013 at 9:02am
  207. At least it was a suspension without pay. One of my biggest pet peeves is the term “Suspended with pay” because that to me sounds like a “vacation”.

    Posted on Tuesday, December 24, 2013 at 9:02am
  208. When are people going to learn?

    Posted on Tuesday, December 24, 2013 at 10:55am

  210. When will people deal with their fears…..

    Posted on Tuesday, December 24, 2013 at 11:45am
  211. He should of sacked on the spot, no wonder homophobic bullying continues to be rife in American high schools if this is the example that this bigot of a coach has set

    Posted on Tuesday, December 24, 2013 at 12:03pm
  212. If he’d spewed that word at me, he’d be wearing his ass for a hat, there should be a nationwide zero tolerance policy on this kind of bullshit!!!

    Posted on Tuesday, December 24, 2013 at 12:12pm
  213. He and Phil are Ducks of a feather, both should be fired, not suspended.

    Posted on Tuesday, December 24, 2013 at 12:40pm
  214. Exactly what are these homo-haters afraid of?

    Posted on Tuesday, December 24, 2013 at 1:01pm

  218. Plain and simply disrespectful.

    Posted on Tuesday, December 24, 2013 at 2:21pm
  219. Just unbelievable AGAIN his First amendment rights ARE NOT being trampled on! He made astatement that made his employer look bad.

    Posted on Tuesday, December 24, 2013 at 3:05pm
  220. His punishment was justified! The only reason this incident didn’t get the same ‘PRESS’ is because he cant try to shield himself by using the Bible and claim Religious Freedom!like Phil Robertson!

    Posted on Tuesday, December 24, 2013 at 3:09pm
  221. FIRE HIS FUCKING ASS NOW!

    Posted on Tuesday, December 24, 2013 at 3:11pm
