Publisher’s note- There are links to the new video embedded in the story. However, we chose not to display the video due to the obscene hand gestures.
After a video of a Bama mom went viral, Michelle Pritchett who starred in the video, said OU fans taunted her and her 16 year old son, but new video shows Pritchett making obscene hand gestures and her son taunting OU fans before she went after the Sooner fans, according to Yellowhammer News.
Yellowhammer landed an exclusive interview with the Alabama mom that fought with several Oklahoma fans during the Sugar Bowl on Thursday. The video of the Bama fan launching herself headlong into the OU fans went viral today. Pritchett told Yellowhammer that while she was sorry the incident took place, she would do it again.
According to the Yellowhammer story, the incident began with good-natured ribbing between fans, but Prichett of Sweetwater drew the line when the fans began taunting her 16-year-old son, she claimed.
“It started off being friendly, just us going back and forth about the game,” Pritchett told Yellowhammer. “But what ended up happening had nothing to do with the game. It escalated. When they said something to my son, I told them to shut their mouths. They were telling my son to come down there and ‘do something about it.’ I said, ‘no, that’s not going to happen. This crap needs to stop.’”

However, more video surfaced on Saturday painting a much different picture. You can see that video here, but be warned there are obscene hand gestures by Pritchett in the video and it may not be suitable for young readers.
In the follow-up article by Yellowhammer, OU fans said it was Pritchett and her son who were doing the taunting.
Today, the Oklahoma fans uploaded another video showing Pritchett flipping them off and her son yelling at them from a few rows up, all of which happened prior to Pritchett taking flight, Yellowhammer reported.
