Coach Apologizes After Football Player Pitches Hissy Fit Over OAN T-Shirt
Oklahoma State head football Coach Mike Gundy apologized for wearing a t-shirt that featured the logo of One America News Network, one of the nation’s top conservative cable television channels.
“I want to apologize to all members of our team, former players and their families for the pain and discomfort that has been caused over the past two days,” the coach said. “Black Lives Matter to me, our players matter to me.”

The controversy started when a leftist writer for CBS Sports tweeted a photograph showing the football coach wearing the OAN shirt during a fishing trip.
Football player Chuba Hubbard saw the photo and suffered a severe microaggression. The triggered athlete threatened to boycott the team and called for a “change.”
Instead of telling the young man to man-up, the coach apologized.

“They helped me see through their eyes, how the T-shirt affected their hearts,” Gundy said. “Once I learned about how that network felt about Black Lives Matter, I was disgusted and knew it was completely unacceptable to me.”
