Student apologizes for game day sign

STILLWATER, Okla_ An Oklahoma State student is apologizing to all Native American's and the university after his fan sign went viral.

The sign he made for ESPN's College Game Day for the OSU versus Florida State Seminoles game reads "Send 'Em Home #Trail_of_Tears #GoPokes."

The student wrote to the university's newspaper, The Daily O'Collegian, to get his apology out. In it he says he never meant to offend anyone and it was a lapse of judgment. Also he directly apologized to Native Americans and pledged to reacquaint himself with the horrors of the Trail of Tears.

The student also deactivated his twitter account where the photo was first originally shared.
