‘F*** the Mormons!’ Utah governor calls Oregon students’ chant during BYU football game ‘religious bigotry’; left-wing Oregon governor says ‘we must do better’

Utah Gov. Spencer Cox blasted an “f*** the Mormons!” chant from University of Oregon students caught on video during a home football game Saturday against Brigham Young University in Eugene, Oregon.

“Religious bigotry alive and celebrated in Oregon,” Cox, a Republican, wrote on a Twitter post that included video of the chant. Content warning: Profanity:

The University of Oregon apologized for the incident Sunday.

“The University of Oregon sincerely apologizes for an offensive and disgraceful chant coming from the student section during yesterday’s game against Brigham Young University,” the school said on a Twitter post. “These types of actions go against everything the university stands for, and it goes against the spirit of competition. We can and will do better as a campus community that has no place for hate, bias or bigotry.”

Oregon’s far-left Gov. Kate Brown posted a retweet of the school’s apology and added a “we must do better” declaration: “In Oregon, we strive to be a welcoming, inclusive state to all, regardless of race, religion, gender, or background. Our state and nation have an ugly history of discrimination and bigotry. The chant at yesterday’s Oregon-BYU game was unacceptable. We must do better.”
