Villanova’s Donte DiVincenzo’s Twitter Account Is Shut Down After ‘Racist & Other Slurs Are Found on His Timeline Dating Back to 2011’

Donte DiVincenzo shut down his Twitter account after offensive tweets were discovered on his timeline, hours after he led the Villanova Wildcats to victory over the Michigan Wolverines in the NCAA championship game.

One tweet from August of 2011, when the sophomore guard was a 14-year-old high school student, contained a Meek Mill song lyric: ‘Ballin on these n***** like I’m derrick rose!’

‘I didn’t do that,’ the Final Four’s Most Outstanding Player told USA Today after he scored a game-high 31 points on Monday.

He was asked who else could have done that, and replied, ‘That’s a good question.’

According to USA Today, the tweet was quickly deleted after DiVincenzo was asked about it and Villanova released a statement saying that his account had been hacked and was deactivated.

The school has since withdrawn that statement since a recent hacking would not explain why such a tweet would exist from 2011.

DiVincenzo, who reportedly had not been active on Twitter since 2016 before shutting down his account, allegedly had homophobic slurs on his timeline as well.
