Cowboys Superstar Speaks Out Against Mike Gundy

By Ryan Novozinsky

STILLWATER- Oklahoma State football coach Mike Gundy is facing controversy after CBS writer Kyle Boone revealed a photo of Gundy wearing a shirt from One American News, a far-right news network.

Oklahoma State running back Chuba Hubbard was one of the first voices to speak out against this photo.

“I will not stand for this,” Hubbard said on Twitter. “This is completely insensitive to everything going on in society, and it’s unacceptable.. I will not be doing anything with Oklahoma State until things change.”

But Hubbard wasn’t alone in speaking out against Gundy. The Heisman candidate also received support from former OSU RB Justice Hill.

“OSU athletics and university need major change,” Hill said in a tweet. “100% support brotha.”

Cowboy linebacker Amen Ogbongbemiga also shared his support for his teammate.

“I stand with him,” Ogbongbemiga said.

Safety Tre Sterling came to defend Hubbard from hate comments.

“Some of the comments showing y’alls true colors,” Sterling said. “Y’all don’t care about my brotha. All  y’all  care ‘bout is touchdowns.”

Other notable names, such as ESPN’s Bomani Jones, also shared their thoughts on Gundy on Twitter.

“Hey the man’s got no problem telling you what he’s about,” Jones said in a tweet.
