OPEN LETTER: Jeff Woody Decries VEISHEA Incident
Iowa State Cyclone football player Jeff Woody has some strong words for those people who watched and participated in the incident in Ames’ Campustown Tuesday night.
Woody wrote a blog post about the incident that happened during VEISHEA week, a celebration of the university’s colleges.
In the post he describes VEISHEA as being a “celebration of education and community” and talks about how the “rioters” don’t understand the purpose of the event.
Woody also wrote, “IF YOU WERE IN THE CROWD DURING THE RIOTS, YOU SHOULD BE EMBARRASSED AND ASHAMED OF YOURSELF.”
Woody posted a link to the blog on his Twitter account and the message is being shared widely.
