Duke Students Chant "South Beach Diet", Paint Chests With "Obesity Kills" To Make Fun Of 290-Pound Reggie Johnson

Hmm.

Duke's student section is known for coming up with creative ways to get inside opposing players' heads. But did they go too far tonight?

According to numerous sources, fans were chanting "South Beach diet" at Miami center Reggie Johnson, who weighs 290 pounds. There was also a group of students (below) with their chests painted to spell out "OBESITY KILLS". 

Is making fun of a player's weight an acceptable practice these days?
