Kansas' Elijah Johnson Received Racist Tweets From Iowa State State Fans Following Jayhawks' Win Over CyclonesReese Strickland/USA TODAY Sports

On Monday, Kansas defeated Iowa State, 108-96, in overtime and while Cyclones fans weren't pleased with the final result, they were especially mad at the Jayhawks' Elijah Johnson, who punctuated his 39-point performance by throwing down an ill-advised dunk with the waning seconds. 

In response to the display, Iowa State fans hit up Johnson on Twitter with some shocking and clearly racist remarks. Ridiculous. Awful. Stupid. Hit the thumbs to check them out.

Now, the police are investigating the tweets and we hope they pay for their hateful words.
