*There’s a debate brewing online about the white woman who tried to interrupt LSU running back Clyde Edwards-Helaire during an emotional moment with his father after winning against their rivals Alabama last weekend.
Edwards-Helaire finished the game with four total touchdowns, and as noted by The YBF, “the Baton Rouge native also racked up 77 yards and a score as a receiver, helping LSU beat Alabama, 46-41. The victory ended an eight-game losing streak against the Crimson Tide,” the outlet writes.
Once the game was over, the college junior and his father shared an emotional hug and the moment instantly went viral — watch below.

As father and son continue to embrace, a white woman taps on the LSU Tigers player’s arm, trying to get his attention. She even yells out “22!” – his jersey number.
Her actions sparked debate on Twitter, with one user noting that “Black people are too damn polite most of the time.”
Others believe the mystery woman’s white privilege got the best of her in the moment.
Check out some reactions to her presence below:
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.

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

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.
