Texas A&M player flips off home fans at halftime, apologizes after game
Will Gunnell issued a statement following Texas A&M's win over Louisiana-Lafayette
Texas A&M's 45-21 win over Louisiana-Lafayette wasn't without some drama. The Aggies actually trailed 21-14 at the half after giving up a late touchdown. Suffice to say, emotions were high in Kyle Field and no one (except for ULL) was happy.
Nothing embodied that frustration more than Texas A&M wide receiver Will Gunnell, who appeared to flip off fans as he walked into the locker room at halftime. It wasn't precisely known at the moment to whom Gunnell's one-finger salutes were geared toward, but it was a regrettable moment all the same.
Afterward, Gunnell took to Twitter to apologize for the gesture, calling it "ill-advised" in a "brief moment."
"First and foremost, I'd like to apologize to my family, teammates, and the university as a whole," Gunnell said. "The action was an ill-advised gesture in no way aimed at the fans. I'm deeply sorry my actions took away from the game. I was raised better and this brief moment will haunt me for the rest of my life. Again I am truly sorry to my teammates, the coaches, and the Aggie nation as a whole. I take full responsibility for my actions."
