There being no good way to dance around this, I’m just going to put up the tweets:
Vanderbilt University Title IX documents show that former Commodore OLB Charles Wright was expelled in 2019 for raping a former team equipment manager one year earlier. Khari Blasingame and Randall Haynie also accused of separate rape/sexual assault:https://t.co/Yl8ah8uzce pic.twitter.com/I2fOPPPmgu— Robbie Weinstein (@rwweinstein) June 20, 2020
Excerpt from the 247 article:
Multiple former or current Vanderbilt students wrote on Twitter on Saturday that they had been raped or sexually assaulted by members of the Commodore football program. Vanderbilt expelled former outside linebacker Charles Wright in February 2019 following appeal for raping former team equipment manager Regan Siems in February 2018, per copies of university Title IX documents provided by Siems to Vandy247. Two more current or former students alleged via Twitter that former player Khari Blasingame and current Commodore Randall Haynie raped or sexually assaulted them.
*Trigger Warning* Now I finally have the strength to say what has burdened me down for such a long time. I was raped my freshman year of college by Charles Wright (@llcdub). He (as a 5th year senior) preyed on my naivety, got me drunk, sexually assaulted and raped me. 1/9— regan siems (@ReganSiems) June 20, 2020
In the wake of this news, there have been multiple additional allegations on Twitter against both a former player (Khari Blasingame) and a current player (Randall Haynie), which in the case of the former player have been denied by his representatives.
Based on 24/7’s reporting, it appears that while Wright was expelled, he was allowed to remain on campus and participate in football pending his appeal. The full Title IX report is not public, and we’re still waiting to hear anything official from the University, but there are undoubtedly some very serious conversations and decisions on the way in days to come.
