Defensive backs X’Avion Brice and Jelani McDonald were dancing, and B.J. Allen Jr. was posing as the team started to wrap up the big win over the Crimson Tide. Running back Quintrevion Wisner was also with his teammates and appeared to hear the yelling coming from the stands.

The video showed that a fan was calling the plays “f—ing f—-ts” and telling them to “go back to the projects.”

Wisner’s mother responded to the video on X.

“The fact my son down there and they saying go back to the projects really just saddens my heart that as his mother no matter how old he had to listen to that!” she wrote. “Love you son! But the parents went through this all night! Beer cans thrown at us, water bottles, spit! Disgrace.”
