Sports website tweets misogynist photo: 'Michigan girls more diseased than Flint water'
Ohio State University football fans mock Flint water crisis (Barstool Sports/Twitter)

A sports website is coming under fire after it used one of its Twitter accounts to share a sexist image mocking the water crisis in Flint, Michigan.


The tweet was posted on Sunday by a Barstool Sports account in support of Ohio State University. A photo included in the message shows a number of OSU fans standing in front of a banner, reading, "Michigan Girls: More Diseased Than Flint Water."

The tweet included a one-word caption: "Truth."

The location of the photo was not known. Many Twitter users immediately called the photo inappropriate, while others pointed out that lead poisoning is not a "disease."

As of Monday afternoon, the tweet had not been removed from the Barstool OSU timeline.
