University of Kentucky Wildcats fans are so bitter about their devastating Elite 8 loss to UNC that they’re now sending death threats to one of the refs, John Higgins, and attempting to sabotage his roofing business which he cleverly named, “Rooferees.”
UK coach John Calipari first spoke about his frustration with the officials during his post game press conference, saying,
“You know, it’s amazing that we were in that game where they practically fouled out my team,” Calipari said. “Amazing that we had a chance.”
Shortly thereafter, Wildcats fans identified Higgins as the target for their anger and flooded his company’s Facebook page with slander, writing false and horrific messages about his roofing business.
Additionally, Higgins has been receiving constant death threats.
According to ESPN,
“Sources said the phones at Higgins’ home and business, also known as Rooferees, have been “ringing off the hook” since the game, with angry Kentucky fans calling to complain and some even going so far as to make death threats.”
As a result, Higgins met with law enforcement for over two hours yesterday but sources say he’s still scheduled to work the Final Four this weekend.
