Just over one month ago, Michigan Wolverines head football coach, Jim Harbaugh, sent out this controversial tweet:
Michigan Football will watch “American Sniper”! Proud of Chris Kyle & Proud to be an American & if that offends anybody then so be it!
— Coach Harbaugh (@CoachJim4UM) April 9, 2015
According to the Washington Post: The university [of Michigan] decided in early April to show the film but reversed field after Muslim and Arab students protested.
The protesting students have now requested a forum and Harbaugh has agreed to listen. However, again through the Post and Michigan spokesman Rick Fitzgerald, a report of Harbaugh issuing an apology has been denied and the football coach will just “meet with U-M students only to hear their concerns.”
