Former NFL quarterback and current radio host Boomer Esiason said he is cutting off the University of Maryland, where he played during his college career, after its decision to cancel a screening of American Sniper.

Esiason, who is the host of the popular Boomer & Carton show in New York, said on Friday that he is "never donating another dime" to Maryland after it caved to pressure from Muslim student groups and canceled a planned screening of American Sniper.

Esiason said he was "deeply saddened and insulted" by the decision.

The University of Michigan earlier this month also cancelled a screening of American Sniper but reversed its decision after much backlash—including from its new head football coach Jim Harbaugh.
