Emily Harriott is a devoted Northwestern University basketball fan, renowned for her ear-piercing shriek

But recently Harriott was told to curb her enthusiasm after the Illinois school received complaints from both fans in the arena and those watching on TV, according to The Chicago Tribune

"I've been screaming since I got on campus freshman year," Harriott told Inside Edition, while showing off her impressive pipes. 

She's such a huge fan, her school's purple and white team colors can be seen everywhere in her off-campus apartment. Even her fingernails showcase her Wildcat love. 

But though she's been a staple of games for years, some find Harriott a bit annoying, and for Northwestern, the complaints became too much. 

They asked her to quiet down. She agreed. 

But Harriott admitted it's hard to hold back at games. And many miss her. 

“I’ve seen some Twitter haters, but most people think: This is cute; you seem funny," she told the Tribune.
