An N.C. State player’s words are going viral after he was caught on live television cursing out President Obama. It all happened Saturday after the eighth-seeded Wolpack pulled off what could be the biggest upset of the 2015 NCAA Tournament making it to the Sweet 16 by ousting the Villanova Wildcats. As the team was celebrating its monumental 71-68 victory in the locker room, Anthony “Cat” Barber wondered: “The fuck wrong with Barack Obama?”
Obama had picked Villanova to reach the NCAA tournament championship game and predicted Kentucky would win it all, explains ESPN. Barber later took to Twitter to say he simply got “caught up in the moment.”
Good team win tonight and Yall know I loveeee Obama HONEST!! 🏀👌-- CAT (@catbarber1994) March 22, 2015
Got nothing but respect for @barackobama. Love our president! Caught up in a moment, Sweet 16!!!-- CAT (@catbarber1994) March 22, 2015
As SBNation points out, Barber is hardly the first to criticize the president after victory. Georgia State head coach Ron Hunter jokingly chastised Obama after his team’s surprising win over Baylor. “Hey Obama, I hope you make better decisions in the presidency than you did about Georgia State,” he said. He later emphasized he was just joking around and asked people to “stop the emails and all the political stuff,” according to USA Today.
