Oklahoma State football coach Mike Gundy has apologized for wearing a One America News Network shirt.

Gundy has been under an intense firestorm after a photograph circulated of him wearing an OAN shirt, and star player Chuba Hubbard threatened boycott the team. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)

Gundy, who already released a video with Hubbard, stated in part, “Once I learned how that network felt about Black Lives Matter, I was disgusted and knew it was completely unacceptable to me. 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 last two days.”

It appears the BLM reference from Gundy is about comments from host Liz Wheeler from years ago, which she says were taken out of context and edited.

This is such a joke, but it’s not one we’re laughing about. That much is for sure. Mike Gundy is a good man, and he just had to issue an apology for wearing a t-shirt representing a conservative news network.

Stop and think about how scary that is. If they can make a famous coach apologize, then they can make anyone apologize for anything.

I really do hope this circus that is cancel culture comes to an end sooner rather than later. We have a problem as society when we force people to apologize for something as simple as a t-shirt choice.

Now Gundy shares the same space as Dabo Swinney for coaches hammered for picking out the wrong shirt. What a joke of a time to a sports fan.
