Fans outraged after Michigan Star Hunter Dickinson goes viral for commenting “scumbags” about a Big Ten rival
Fans of Michigan basketball were outraged after star player Hunter Dickinson went viral for commenting “scumbags” about a Big Ten rival during an appearance on the Roundball Podcast. The comment, which was made in the midst of a heated discussion about the rivalry between the two teams, has sparked a backlash from fans and players alike.
Dickinson’s controversial comment about Wisconsin basketball on the Roundball Podcast met with immediate backlash from Wisconsin players, who took to social media to express their outrage. He said “Wisconsin, I mean they’re just scumbags… Nothing I can say about Wisconsin is going to fire up the matchup even more, but it is what it is. They’re scumbags.”
It is a bit irony to see Hunter making such comment when his team Michigan’s head coach Juwan Howard was suspended due to slapping a staff member of Wisconsin last year.
Many Michigan fans are surprisingly defending Dickinson, with some even calling for Wisconsin to apologize for their reaction to the comment. One fan tweeted, “It was just a harmless comment made in the heat of the moment. Wisconsin needs to stop being so sensitive.”
However, others have argued that Dickinson’s comment was completely out of line and that he should be held accountable for his words. One Michigan fan stated, “As a fan of College Basketball, I am embarrassed by Hunter’s comment. He is a role model for young athletes and his words have consequences. He needs to take responsibility for his actions and apologize to Wisconsin.”
What’s next on the situation?
As the situation continues to escalate, it remains to be seen how it will ultimately be resolved. However, one thing is clear – Dickinson’s comment has sparked a heated debate among fans and players alike, and has shone a spotlight on the importance of sportsmanship and respect in college athletics.
Ultimately, it is up to Dickinson and the Michigan program to take responsibility for the comment and work towards building a better, more respectful relationship with Wisconsin and other Big Ten rivals. The Michigan star’s play on the floor has only improved. The center is experiencing his best college season to date and was recently named Big Ten Player of the Week.
