Fagan Twins Indefinitely Suspended By U.S. Ski and Snowboard Over Racial Slurs

“I used a word in a playful manner as I did not understand the significance and weight of the word and the effects it would cause.”

18-year-old twins Deven and Kiernan Fagan have been dropped from sponsors and suspended from the U.S. Ski and Snowboard team after clips of them using racial slurs on social media surfaced. Here is the U.S. Ski and Snowboard’s statement:

“U.S. Ski & Snowboard does not condone acts of violence, underage drinking, or discriminatory language or actions that criticize, ridicule or otherwise disparage another individual’s race, color, creed, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, marital status, religion, or age. U.S. Ski & Snowboard recently became aware of content that portrays Deven and Kiernan Fagan behaving in a way that is in violation of U.S. Ski & Snowboard’s Athlete Agreement and Code of Conduct. Effective immediately, Deven and Kiernan will be subject to a formal, indefinite suspension. Kiernan and Deven’s return to U.S. Ski & Snowboard sanctioned activities is reliant upon completing diversity and sensitivity education. U.S. Ski & Snowboard will work closely with Kiernan and Deven in the coming months to evaluate their progress and team status.”
