Featherston “shared a link” on the social media website that was commenting on A&M’s plans to leave 12 seats empty in its renovated stadium to honor the 12 students who died in the bonfire collapse in 1999.
Featherston posted a message he said he didn’t write “but could have.”
The message said, in part: “If the number of students that were victims of what amounted to drunken, negligent homicide on the part of that cow college didn’t match so perfectly with the cult’s favorite number, I doubt you would have seen anything like this done.”
The message concludes: “See, this way it’s a passive tragedy that “happened” rather than an active atrocity that was committed. This fits into the real aggy honor code of lying, cheating, and stealing.”
