The outrage mob on social media has gotten another scalp, this time at Cornell:

A Cornell University football coach has been forced to issue an apology for the “cultural insensitivity” of tweeting a photo of two players wearing sombreros.

Cornell Football’s offensive line coach Roy Istvan came under fire for a tweet sent out Tuesday morning, now deleted, captioned “Eman & Fosta! THE BIG SOMBRERO!” with a picture of two football players each wearing a big sombrero…

Ivstan also explained the original pictures in another tweet, saying the hat is awarded to “team members who represent the best teamwork and winning spirit on and off the field.”
