Michael Barnett, the assistant theatre chair, says several students in the play told him that audience members were disruptive and used ``derogatory terms'' for homosexuals during a production of ``The Laramie Project'' on campus.
Ole Miss coach Hugh Freeze confirmed to The Associated Press Thursday that football players were in the crowd. Barnett says a group of football players apologized after the play.
Freeze tweeted on Thursday morning, ``We certainly do not condone any actions that offend or hurt people in any way. We are working with all departments involved to find the facts.''
The Daily Mississippian first reported the disruption.
