OAN reporter and chief White House Correspondent Chanel Rion wore an Oklahoma State University t-shirt while covering President Donald Trump’s rally in Tulsa on Saturday as a message to Cowboys head coach Mike Gundy who distanced himself from the network earlier in the week.

On Tuesday, Gundy apologized for the “pain and discomfort” he caused his players and others when he was photographed wearing a T-shirt from conservative news site OAN (One America News), which has been extremely critical of the Black Lives Matter movement.

The apology came a day after star running back Chuba Hubbard took to social media to call out Gundy for wearing the shirt.

“I had a great meeting with our team today. Our players expressed their feelings as individuals and as team members,” Gundy said. “They helped me see through their eyes how the T-shirt affected their hearts. 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. Black Lives Matters to me. Our players matter to me.

On Saturday Rion trolled Gundy by wearing an OSU shirt and challenged the Oklahoma State coach to have a sit down with her for bashing OAN in his apology video.

As you know there’s a bit of controversy surrounding you’re OSU coach Gundy wearing an OAN T-shirt on his private time and we reached out to Gundy and Hubbard and asked if they would sit down with us to discuss why exactly Hubbard and the rest of the team believes that OAN is disgusting

It’s highly unlikely Gundy or any of his players would have a sit down interview with OAN after the immense amount of controversy that went down this week.
