Last month, two Wisconsin fans took the idea of Halloween too far and have reportedly now had their season tickets revoked by the university.
According to the Wisconsin State Journal, University of Wisconsin-Madison chancellor Rebecca Blank said in a meeting with the university’s faculty senate Monday that the two fans would have their season tickets revoked and new policies would be instituted at Camp Randall Stadium. Blank said the fans brought a prohibited item into the stadium and did not follow instructions from Camp Randall Stadium staff.
The two people attended Wisconsin’s 23-17 win over Nebraska on Oct. 29 dressed as President Barack Obama and Donald Trump. The fan dressed as Obama had a noose around their neck, while the fan dressed as Trump was holding the end of the noose.

When Camp Randall Stadium security confronted the two fans, they obliged and removed the noose. However, Wisconsin did not remove the fans from the stadium outright, saying the fans’ actions were protected under the First Amendment.
Following criticism from Wisconsin students for allowing the fans to remain in the stadium, the university released an official statement following the game as to why security did not remove the fans.
Blank and Wisconsin athletic director Barry Alvarez said the university will review its stadium policies, and announce any policy changes before the Badgers host Illinois this Saturday at 3:30 p.m. ET.
