UNC apologizes for poking fun at Clemson fans during Saturday’s football game
Tigers fans may have been happy with the outcome of the UNC-Clemson game on Saturday, but some weren’t too happy about jokes made during the game.
During a break, some Clemson fans in the stands at Kenan Memorial Stadium were featured on the video board with captions implying they were bandwagon fans.
The captions said things such as “thinks Clemson is in Georgia” and “can’t name Clemson’s last head coach”
The jokes didn’t land with some Tigers fans, who complained to the athletic department about what happened.
Bubba Cunningham, UNC’s athletic director, apologized to Clemson’s president and director of athletics on Sunday, according to Robbi Pickeral Evans, UNC’s associate athletic director for strategic communications.
He’s also been responding to emails from people upset by the video board antics, she said.
But some think the apology was unnecessary.
