The white woman trying to disrupt LSU running back Clyde Edwards-Helaire during an emotional moment with father has sparked a race debate. Watch the clip and share your thoughts inside…

LSU running back Clyde Edwards-Helaire celebrated a major accomplishment when he helped clinched a win against their rivals Alabama last weekend. He made a tackle-breaking touchdown in the fourth quarter that sealed the deal. The college football player ran for 103 yards and scored three touchdowns. 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, so emotions were uber high.

Once the game was over the college junior walked over to his father on the sidelines and shared an emotional hug. The father-son duo held each other, shed tears and the moment instantly went viral.

Watch the heartwarming moment below:



As you can see, while these two men were sharing an intimate moment, a white woman continuously tapped on the LSU Tigers player’s arm, likely trying to get a selfie or an autograph…or just his attention period. As she tapped on his arm while he’s embracing his father, she yelled out “22!” – his jersey number. Guess she didn’t bother to actually find out his name.

The actions of the woman have folks sounding off on social media and yes, race came into play.

Peep some of the reaction tweets below:

















Seriously, did this woman NOT see Clyde was sharing a special moment with his father? Several Twitter users pointed out that her white privilege got in the way of understanding what was unfolding right in front of her. This was clearly an emotional moment NOT to be interrupted for something like a selfie or an autograph. Do you think she was out of line?!




After the game, one of the football players hopped on Instagram Live, filming from LSU's locker room after the big win. In the clip, it sounds like LSU's head coach Ed Orgeron goes HAM on Bama:

"We're going to beat their ass in recruiting. We're going to beat their ass every time they see us," the person can be heard saying. "You understand that? Roll Tide, what? F*ck you."

Oop. Talk your ish, coach.
