Before their title game against the Wolverines, a Villanova fan hung a banner on campus shaming Michigan by mocking the Flint water crisis.
The handmade banner which was draped from a building on Villanova’s campus slammed the Wolverines saying, “The Only Lead @mich (Michigan) will have is in their water,” sports site 12Up reported.

The Flint water crisis is, of course, the scandal where the city’s water authorities knowingly supplied 100,000 residents water with unhealthy, high levels of lead.
The Villanova banner was not the first time that Flint’s troubles figured in as a jab in college sports. Last November a group of Ohio fans also used the water crisis as a jab at Michigan with a banner reading, “Michigan Girls: More Diseased Than Flint Water.”
