SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – Former Olympus Titans star and current Alabama tight end Cameron Latu appeared in a Crimson Tide social media post supporting the Black Lives Matter movement.

Latu and his teammates spoke about the movement and racial inequality during a video that was published to social media on June 25.

“All lives can’t matter until Black lives matter,” Crimson Tide players said in the video.

Following the Crimson Tide’s post, Mark Chambers, the former mayor of Carbon Hill, Alabama, posted disparaging comments about the Alabama football team on social media.

Chambers said that he was selling his photos of the Crimson Tide and head coach Nick Saban due to their “sorry” political views and added, “the Tide is done in my opinion.”

On June 27, Chambers submitted his resignation letter.
