Mark Hudspeth, the head coach of the Louisiana-Lafayette football team, has announced that he has suspended for players for their role in a video that they’re seen saying “F*** Donald Trump.” The video surfaced on following their win over the Georgia Southern Eagles on Thursday night, according to Tim Buckley of The Advertiser.

The video came out two days after President-Elect defeated Hillary Clinton in the Presidential Election. Trump will be the 45th President of the United States in Jan.

“I am obviously disappointed in a few of our players’ immature behaviors that they demonstrated in the locker room,” he said. “We do not condone that type of behavior. IT is not an example of our entire team. It does not represent our entire team.”

The players were seen singing FDT from YG and Nipsey Hussle’s song “FDT.” The FDT stands for “F*** Donald Trump.”

While they’re seeing saying, “F*** Donald Trump,” Hudspeth said that a few of his players did not vote in the election. He said, “[they] didn’t have a dog in the hunt.”

Scott Farmer, the UL-Lafayette Athletic Director, also released a statement. He wasn’t pleased by their actions.

“Recently, a video showing a small group of student-athletes acting inappropriately was recorded and shared on social media,” Farmer said. “This video in no way represents the views and values of the Ragin’ Cajuns Football program, the Athletic Department or the University of Louisiana at Lafayette. Like many of you, we are disappointed in the actions of these student-athletes. Coach Hudspeth recognized the severity of the situation and does not condone their behavior. He acted swiftly to discipline those involved and continues to educate the team on how their actions are a reflection of the game on the front of their jerseys.”

It’s not known at this time who released the video.
