YOU COULD SEE THERE, HE HIT THE OPPOSING PLAYER SO HARD THAT HE DROPPED RIGHT DOWN TO THE GROUND. YEAH, FITCHBURG STATE IS INVESTIGATING. AND THIS MAY NOT BE THE END OF IT. WBZ’S KEN McCLOUD IS LIVE IN FITCHBURG TONIGHT, WITH A STORY A LOT OF PEOPLE ARE WEIGHING IN ON, KEN. YEAH, LISA. WHEN A VIDEO LIKE THIS GOES VIRAL, IT DOES NOT DO MUCH FOR YOUR SCHOOL NAME. NOW, FITCHBURG STATE WAS QUICK TO ACT TODAY. BUT THE VISUAL EVIDENCE IS PRETTY DISTURBING. THERE ARE NOT MANY FOLKS ON CAMPUS WHO HAVEN’T SEEN IT YET. OH. IT’S ABSOLUTELY TERRIBLE. GLAD HE’S OUT. HE’S TALKING ABOUT LAST NIGHT’S BASKETBALL GAME HERE, WHERE FITCHBURG’S KEWAN PLAT FLATTENS NATE. WITH A SEEMINGLY UNPROVOKED FOREARM TO THE FACE. YOU SHOULD NEVER BE DOING THAT IN BASKETBALL. THAT’S DEFINITELY LIKE A BAD NAME FOR FITCHBURG. INDEED. DESPITE THE QUICK GLANCE TO SEE IF THE NEARBY REFEREE IS LOOKING, THE OTHER REF SAW IT AND KICKED HIM OUT OF THE GAME.

  1. More black on white crime. Imagine if the races were reversed? Whites are the only race which it is acceptable to discriminate against.

  2. What do you expect from a tattooed hood rat named Kewan. He was probably raised by a single hochie mamma as a feral thug with no morals or values. People have been kissing his nasty black ass and inflating his ego because he can throw a basketball. Now he can elbow his manager at Taco Bell in the face if he wants.

  3. Haaaa!! Them feral animals can’t control themselves!! And now the feral animal will be charged with aggravated assault. Nice choice, idiot.

  4. The piece of shit throws up an airball, bitches at the ref then jogs up the court on defense and white boy swishes a three in his face. He was just frustrated that a white dude was trashing his sorry ass on the court.

  5. This boy learned this move watching his bros play the ‘knockout game’ in the hood. He belongs with his droopy pants wearin hoodmates in prison.

  6. You guys are petty asf under this… as a black woman, the blk guy is DEAD WRONG. POINT BLANK and should be "handled accordingly" But for the white ppl saying "oh if it was vice versa, the race card would be pulled n etc", sounds like yal are actually pulling your own cards and being racist in the same breath 👀 lmao. SAD WORLD.

  7. This is why i shoot to kill. If nothing criminal happens I will use this in my defence against being put up for murder. Downloaded cant make it disappear YouTube.

  8. Why all the assumption race was motivation for the foul , the guy just lost his cool and reacted in an immature way. I’ve played a lot of basketball, high school , adult leagues , pick up games at park gyms etc. a lot of stupid and sometimes violent shit happens. Not everything is about race.

  9. Make Platt travel to each game and have him clean the bench and locker room.  Apologize in public after each game.  If you kick him off the team, no one wins.

  10. White ppl need to start pulling the race card because white men are the minorities in today's society. No matter what a white man think or does to be good twords anyone he's a fucking racist. This shits getting old. And the big problem is history will never stop repeating itself. Divide and conquer that's what they THE REAL MOTHER FUCKERS IN POWER WANT.

  11. If they were walking on campus and this happened, CHARGE HIM. However, they're playing sports for Pete's sake, crap like this happens all the time. Players brawl, assault each other, call each other racial remarks, spit on each other, EVERYTHING besides street weapons. Its competition. Suspend him for so many games but this? THIS is excessive. If you dont understand, maybe you've never played anything beyond HS/college. 🤷🏾‍♂️💯

  12. Just because you're playing a sport it doesn't mean you
    can't be criminally charged. All it takes is a district attorney
    with a conscience to file felony assault charges and a jury
    a few seconds to convict the idiot. A year in prison should
    teach Platt a nice lesson.

  13. Bums don’t go in the comments act like you know shit I was in the bleachers and the white kid was running his mouth and shoving him the whole game. Also you can see how the news showed only the bad side of him like you can’t just say it’s just a game or i don’t want this to tarnish the schools name like check your selves son🤦🏻‍♂️

  14. Sad. That video will follow him for the rest of his life. You just annihilated your character. And for what, a shot you missed? What a waste.

  15. expel and criminal charge to say the least.there is no way a piece of shit like that should ever play organized sports,ever.

  16. To no one's surprise not a single NBA player commented on this..
    But if it was the other way around people would be screaming everywhere….

  17. I really enjoy some of the students trying to justify this. This is a fucked up play and he absolutely deserves to be booted from the team. Also, can everyone wait two fucking seconds before they bring race into it? Fuck.

  18. They said he was mad about a previous foul…WHERE?? NOT ONLY SHOULD HE BE REMOVED FROM THE TEAM BUT ASSAULT CHARGES SHOULD BE FILED.

  19. This dude has entitlement & anger issues & needs to be off the team. If he did that after the white guy barely touched him hes trippin. Its D3. He obviously missed the 3 badly bc its D3 basketball & he's not that good. If Zion would've fouled him I bet he wouldn't have did anything.

  20. Wow I applaud u white people ! Your finally seeing who the REAL RACIST people are ! You know.. the number 1 most racist culture in America.. AFRICAN AMERICANS! I swear if u live anywhere else outside of America, black people aren't fuckin RETARDED! No black mf.. we aren't racist towards ur color fool ! We just can't stand how uncivilized you are. ! And I live in the fucking hood grew up in the hood and u can't tell me that blacks can't be racist.. Muslim's and Afro Americans are tied at being the most sensitive and racist cultures ever !

  21. Man, the Trump supporters are out in full force in the comments here.

    Definitely an inappropriate foul, he should have been ejected and possibly charged with assault. That is far beyond the typical kind of heat of the moment behavior typical in basketball.

    I don't think race had anything to do with it, and people stating "if it were reversed you would ___" are putting words into others mouths and attacking a situation that does not exist (it is irrelevant).

  22. Definitely not part, or justified as a game, Basketball is a sport, your actions have to be deemed accountable to sportsmanship! No matter what race, creed or color! In this incident this player should be suspended immediately from the Basketball conference, and university officials (student affairs) hold a hearing on his behalf deciding his outcome from this incident the scholarship of his academic/athletic remaining time there! As a student

  23. Perhaps words than the barbaric violence, the Fitchburg students that you interviewed don't strike me as intelligent. I bet they are Boston Bruins fans too.

  24. this guy should be kick out of the team and banned from school forever not for what he did…but more so for being stupid….he looked at the ref just to make sure he got away with it…since it was not an action related to the play at hand it should be treated as a regular assault…if one does this on the streets he would most likely face criminal charges…

  25. No need of this shit I think he just fucked a chance of playing in the nba if he'd be only a bench player lots of other bench players that can take his place teams don't need a hot head like that getting them fined for some hothead move

  26. I can bet you 100$ that the fat dude talking has never bounced a basketball once “iTs JuSt a gAMe” you shouldn’t have to injury or hit someone over playing a sport yet he says it’s just a game…

  27. For him to be upset for the non call on his blown 3 is typical victim mentality. "Campus police are looking into the matter" He's already expelled. What more can they do? The local police should be called and he should be arrested.

  28. I know this is going to be hard for some people to accept but there's no reason to believe that race had anything to do with it. That is the case until there is good evidence otherwise. This holds true for all incidents involving anyone of any color.

  29. I see this video about BASKETBALL brings out all the racists.. The hateful shit you people will say behind a computer is astonishing. Honestly how are you ANY better than this guy saying shit like that??

  30. Suspension!? Fuck that! Lock this cocksucker up! This guy should get his leg bashed for that! That is so un-fucking-believable! Not called for in any sport!
