The (Raleigh) News and Observer reported yesterday that the president of website College Insider says a writer who sent racist tweets from a Duke basketball game earlier this month is not affiliated with the site “in any way.”

“John Stansberry, who falsely identified himself online as a sports reporter for College Insider, allegedly took a photo of Greta Chen, a Duke first-year student, and her friends at the Dec. 2 men’s basketball game against South Dakota in Cameron Indoor Stadium. The photo was tweeted along with a racial comment,” according to an Observer report.

Stansberry was exposed after Chen posted the tweets on her Facebook account.

College Insider president Joe Dwyer told the Observer that Stansberry, who has since deleted his Twitter account, “departed his contractor role three years ago and fraudulently gained press credentials.”
