A group of Kentucky basketball fans are getting crushed for a classless banner displayed in front of their house ahead of today's game against Auburn.

The banner pokes fun at the injury to Auburn forward Chuma Okeke, who suffered a torn ACL at the end of the Sweet 16 win against North Carolina.

The injury is a devastating one to Auburn's program, as Bruce Pearl teared up when talking about it after the win. The Tigers' players are still emotional about it, too.

Auburn isn't happy about the banner:

One of Auburn's players, Danjel Purifoy, had a message for Kentucky fans ahead of tipoff in the Elite Eight. 

Auburn and Kentucky are set to tip off at 2:20 p.m. E.T.

The game will be on CBS.
