    Offended Cornell Students Freak Out After Football Coach Tweets Sombrero Picture

    Cornell University Football Coach Roy Istvan apologized to students who were offended by an image he tweeted: an image of two of his players wearing sombreros.

    Why were they wearing sombreros? Istvan awards the big hat to the player or players who best represented team spirit on the field after a game.

    This practice has displeased some members of MEChA de Cornell, a Mexican student group.

    "They're appropriating a culture that isn't theirs and using it as a joke," wrote one student on MEChA's Facebook page, according to Campus Reform. "It's disgusting and I'm ashamed that you can't see that."

    The Facebook page's administrators posted a link to Cornell's Bias Response Team and encouraged students to file a complaint against Istvan.

    Another person demanded action from the student-government.

    "What is your [the Student Assembly's] response to this?" asked the student. "So many of your fellow students' culture is being used as a prop consistently on this campus and it is supported publicly by this university. Will you pass a proposition to recommend a faculty/staff diversity and cultural sensitivity training? Or will you just push it under the rug as you did the Cinco de Octubre event? I expect a response to this from the Minority Liaison."

    You'll be hearing from the Minority Liasion! was apparently enough of a threat to persuade Istvan to apologize.

    "I am truly sorry for the cultural insensitivity and understand how our expression of pride came at the expense of others in the Cornell community," he wrote on Twitter.

    The image was initially retweeted by Cornell's official Twitter account, which prompted one member of student-government to seek an apology from the university.

    "Publically supporting this is absolutely unacceptable, and I request that you remove this immediately," the student wrote.​

    Note to self: wear sombrero to homecoming this weekend.

    The Native American faggots at my school are always crying about appropriation but they are super excited about these new dance troupes that mix Native dancing and hip hop. :facepalm:

    But it's ok to appropriate whit culture right? Like German Christmas trees, French deserts, Irish whiskey, Scottish kilts, midevil knight costumes, and Viking costumes? I can't wait to get out of college and get away from these nutty fucking people.:facepalm: Maybe minorities shouldn't be able to fly in airplanes any more since two white dudes invented it. The PC movement really needs to end.

    Milennial faggots. Shave their heads and send them to Syria to fight ISIS.

    And by "fight ISIS", I mean be bullet sponges.
