BuzzFeed News has contacted the White House to confirm whether Iowa could expect an invitation.
The gesture was criticized by those online who argued that the same invite would not have been reciprocated in a reverse situation.
“If Iowa would’ve won, Jill Biden would not even have considered inviting LSU to the goddamn White House. Come on now,” journalist Imani Gandy wrote.
“When Black women win a national championship, they should not be forced to share the stage with the losing team,” former White House aide Keith Boykin wrote.
“Black women are the most loyal constituency of the Democratic Party,” he added. “The White House needs to walk this back as soon as possible.”
Another LSU player, Alexis Morris, appeared to take offense to Biden’s open invitation and posted a request to celebrate with the Obamas.
