The sign makes light of the death toll and devastation brought to Louisiana during Hurricane Katrina, which was one of the most deadly in human history. Nearly 2,000 people died as a result of the storm.
Alabama plays LSU on Saturday in an important match up for two teams that are currently in the top four in the whole country.
“UA is appalled that anyone would display a banner with such an inappropriate and offensive statement,” A spokesperson for the University of Alabama told the Crimson White.
That sign was at an off-campus apartment building and has been taken down, according to multiple sources. CW has contacted UA for comment
