Mississippi State running back Kylin Hill tweeted a message to the governor calling for a change in his state and shortly after the tweet went out, it went viral.

Kylin is the number 1 running back in the state so he's had attention on him but never as much until he tweeted to the governor. In the tweet, Hill said, “Either change the flag or I won’t be representing this state anymore and I mean that… I’m tired.” Hill spoke to SI's Ross Dellenger to share why he decided to speak out, and the firestorm that came from it.
