What a moment for Clyde Edwards-Helaire

As you can see, while these two men were sharing an intimate moment, a white woman continuously tapped on the LSU Tigers player’s arm, likely trying to get a selfie or an autograph…or just his attention period. As she tapped on his arm while he’s embracing his father, she yelled out “22!” – his jersey number. Guess she didn’t bother to actually find out his name.
The actions of the woman have folks sounding off on social media and yes, race came into play.

Does this lady not realize he’s a little effing busy!?

Wonderful image of a father & his son. That woman needs to check her entitlement & attempts to disrupt a bonding moment.

I’m so glad they ignored her. Because no offense but … ok I’m going to say it … black people are too damn polite most of the time.

Please tell me someone is going to find that white lady and give her a lesson she won’t soon forget. I literally mean a lesson. Sit down and let me tell you about your white entitlement and actions of ownership over a black man. This video should be touching but it’s disgusting.

A privileged white female with no respect for personal space, and no awareness of what the outcome would be if Clyde or his dad grabbed and tapped her while her head was down, as she’s did them.
The kind of broad who’d call the police on Clyde, because he walked down the street.

“I hate to interrupt one of the happiest moment of your son’s life but could you take a picture of me and my friend?” – Karen

Seriously, did this woman NOT see Clyde was sharing a special moment with his father? Several Twitter users pointed out that her white privilege got in the way of understanding what was unfolding right in front of her. This was clearly an emotional moment NOT to be interrupted for something like a selfie or an autograph. Do you think she was out of line?!
“We gonna beat their ass in recruiting We gonna beat their ass every time they see us. ROLL TIDE WHAT… F**K YOU”
Coach Orgeron went off on Bama

After the game, one of the football players hopped on Instagram Live, filming from LSU’s locker room after the big win. In the clip, it sounds like LSU’s head coach Ed Orgeron goes HAM on Bama:
“We’re going to beat their ass in recruiting. We’re going to beat their ass every time they see us,” the person can be heard saying. “You understand that? Roll Tide, what? F*ck you.”

Oop. Talk your ish, coach.
