Some FIU alumni and students reacted angrily on social media at the sight of a suspect in the South Beach beating of a gay couple. He was wearing an FIU T-shirt.

Surveillance video captured four young men jumping a gay couple at Ocean Drive and Sixth Street after the Gay Pride Parade in Miami Beach.

And the school itself, which crows, "A campus as diverse as its students," on the front page of its website, was forced to respond on Twitter when someone pointed out the suspect's attire.

The Miami Beach Police Department asked for the public's help in identifying a group of men who started a fight on Ocean Drive following the gay pride parade on April 8, 2018. The men turned themselves in on Tuesday, April 10.
