A bizarre video emerged online over the weekend that purportedly shows a naked Anthony Davis being spanked as part of a hazing ritual during his freshman year at the University of Kentucky.

The six-second Vine clip shows a person who bears a resemblance to the New Orleans Pelicans star being pinned face down against the ground with his hands held behind his back. The subject laughs and mugs for the camera as his bare bottom is repeatedly smacked.

The royal blue clothing seen on the floor appears to match that of Kentucky Wildcats uniforms. Davis spent a year at UK before he was drafted first overall by New Orleans in 2012.

Deadspin identified the person who uploaded the video as a Louisville Cardinals fan. The caption on it reads “Anthony Davis GAY.”

The Vine app allows users to upload small time-lapse clips and was released in Jan., 2013 but the clip in question seems to be a recording of a monitor.

TMZ reached out to the University of Kentucky but did not receive a response.

The clip comes at a time when hazing in sports is under heavy scrutiny. Miami Dolphins guard Richie Incognito was suspended by the team last week over allegations of bullying and hazing against teammate Jonathan Martin.
