The University of Kentucky's Athletic Director has condemned a football banner that's gone viral because of its offense comment to Hurricane Irma victims.

The banner reads "If Hurricane Irma didn't F*** you up, Cats will." The exploitive was spelled "FUK" with the UK in the style of the University of Kentucky's logo.

Athletic Director Mitch Barnhart tweeted about the offensive sign stating, "That's not us," referring to the University.

Barnhart added they would be accepting donations at Saturday's game against Florida to help relief efforts.
