(Michael Barnes, Liberty Headlines) Oklahoma State University football coach Mike Gundy was the target of a nationwide Twitter mob on Monday after a picture surfaced of the longtime Cowboys coach wearing a One America News Network (OAN) shirt while on a fishing trip.

Now, he’s vowing “change.”

“In light of today’s tweet with the T-shirt that I was wearing, I met with some players and realize it’s a very sensitive issue with what’s going on in today’s society,” Gundy said in a video alongside OSU’s star running back Chuba Hubbard.

Hubbard is a black Canadian national who received more than 135,000 likes and 29,600 retweets for blasting Gundy on Twitter.

“I’m looking forward to making some changes, and it starts at the top with me. And we’ve got good days ahead,” Gundy said prior to embracing Hubbard.

OAN is a conservative news network that reports favorably on President Donald Trump and regularly challenges mainstream news media left-wing bias.

OAN has also refused to bend a knee in its coverage of recent riots and Black Lives Matter activities in the wake of the death of George Floyd, a criminal suspect who died while in the custody of the Minneapolis Police Department.

Hubbard seized on the photo after it was tweeted by a CBS news sports reporter. The news media quickly piled on as Twitter mobs defamed Gundy as a racist. The viral whirlwind of media-feeding-mobs and mobs-feeding-media has spiraled into one of the nation’s top news stories — all over a T-shirt.

“I will not stand for this,” tweeted Hubbard, the nation’s leading rusher last season.

“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,” he said.

Kenny Stills, an NFL player who formerly played at OSU rival Oklahoma, tweeted his disapproval with the apparent truce between Gundy and Hubbard.

“You did nothing wrong. Without public pressure Gundy wouldn’t have flinched. He didn’t even apologize in this video,” Stills wrote.

Hubbard responded, tweeting, “No don’t get it twisted. Foots still on the gas. Results are coming. It’s not over.”

Conservative commentator Matt Walsh had the top reply to Hubbard’s initial tweet, gaining more than 17,200 likes: “You won’t stand for a guy wearing a T-shirt you don’t like? Do you think you should be the one dressing him every morning? I mean the narcissism is off the charts. Good Lord.”
