Mike Gundy releases another video, apologizes to players for wearing OAN shirt
On Monday, a photo surfaced of Oklahoma State coach Mike Gundy wearing a “One America News” t-shirt. Based on that news organization’s stance on the Black Lives Matter movement, many Cowboy players, including star RB Chuba Hubbard, were upset with Gundy.
That led to players threatening to boycott workouts and activities, which led to Hubbard and Gundy meeting and releasing a video together.
However, many questioned why Hubbard was the only one to apologize in that video. On Tuesday, Gundy issued another statement, apologizing to players and fans for wearing the OAN shirt:

“Once I learned how that network (OAN) felt about Black Lives Matter, I was disgusted and knew it was completely unacceptable to me,” Gundy says in the video. “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 2 days. Black lives matter to me. Our players matter to me.”
Here was the statement tweeted out by Hubbard after the first video involving Hubbard and Gundy was released on Monday:
