Football Coaches Should Avoid These Problematic T-Shirts

• June 16, 2020 7:00 pm


Oklahoma State University football coach Mike Gundy was nearly canceled after he was photographed wearing a One America News (OAN) T-shirt while standing next to a pile of fish.

The school's running back, Chuba Hubbard, reacted to the photo via Twitter, writing: "I will not stand for this.. 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."

Other social media users also weighed in on the controversy, which appears to have been resolved amicably.

As a rule of thumb, football coaches and other adults should probably refrain from ever wearing a T-shirt advertising any television network. OAN is obviously problematic because of its support for President Donald Trump, not to mention the fact that Washington Free Beacon reporter Adam Kredo has appeared on the network to provide expert commentary.

Many have argued there's no such thing as a "safe" media network, and they're probably right. Wearing the logo of any one of the following networks could make the wearer a prime target for cancellation, and therefore should never be done in public.

ABC News

CANCELED… for turning a blind eye to senior vice president Barbara Fedida's racist remarks about black employees, broadcasting fake news about Syria, the disgusting behavior of disgraced former political director Mark Halperin, and the cowardice of network executives who spiked a story on Clinton associate Jeffrey Epstein's monstrous abuse of young women.

CBS News

CANCELED… for condoning fake news and for the sexually inappropriate behavior of disgraced host Charlie Rose, disgraced producer Jeff Fager, and disgraced chief executive Les Moonves.


CANCELED… for embracing every dumb thing Don Lemon has ever said; reporter Kaitlan Collins's homophobic tweets; former contributor Marc Lamont Hill's anti-Semitism; broadcasting the belief that Trump "may be responsible" for more deaths than Hitler, Stalin, and Mao; and the continued employment of Jim Acosta.

NBC News

CANCELED… for being complicit in the employment of sexual deviants Mark Halperin and Chris Matthews, the homophobic opinions expressed by Joy-Ann Reid, Brian Williams's fake war stories, the predatory behavior of disgraced host Matt Lauer, and the refusal of network executives to publish detailed allegations of sexual assault against disgraced Hollywood mogul and Clinton associate Harvey Weinstein.

In conclusion: Stay safe. Don't wear a media network's logo on your shirt.
