Photo: Fan At Wisconsin vs. Nebraska Game Wore Costume Featuring Barack Obama With A Noose Around His Neck

A fan at the Wisconsin vs. Nebraska game reportedly wore a Halloween costume featuring Barack Obama with a noose around his neck.

While it's certainly okay to express your political opinions and beliefs in our country, what you'll see in the photos below is not and never will be appropriate.

A fan at the Wisconsin vs. Nebraska game Saturday night was seen wearing a Halloween costume that depicted President Barack Obama with a noose around his neck. In the photo, he's holding a sign that seems to reference quotes that Hillary Clinton has made in the past. The other side of the mask features Clinton's face.

The fan's costume was reported to Wisconsin's police and staff. According to tweets, the fan was asked to remove the noose. It also looks like the fan - and another fan who seemed to be involved - were asked to leave. As they left, they were wearing masks of Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump. Clinton's mask had a noose around the neck too.

We obviously don't have all the facts here, but regardless, this isn't the kind of thing you ever want to see. We'll keep you updated regarding fallout from the situation.
