*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.

Once the game was over, the college junior and his father shared an emotional hug and the moment instantly went viral — watch below.
