Appalachian State tennis player Spencer Brown, has been suspended after telling John Wilson IV, a student at North Carolina A&T, “At least I know my dad,” during a match, The New York Post reports. Wilson accused Brown of making other racially inflammatory remarks as well.

The A&T player said, on Twitter, that he approached Appalachian State's coach about the slight, only to receive a less-than-satisfactory response. 



Black Twitter responded quickly to Wilson's request with shows of support and of outrage:


















Appalachian State Athletics posted a statement on their Twitter page this morning, apologizing for Brown’s conduct, and confirming that he is "suspended indefinitely from the team, effective immediately."

Wilson tweeted that he was not personally contacted by Appalachian State, but he is happy Brown has been punished for his actions.
