Red Sox Fans Rage Online After Team Hangs Black Lives Matter Banner Outside Fenway Park (PIC + TWEETS)

The Red Sox have made a strong statement in a city that is notorious for not being the most welcoming of certain minorities.

The team posted a picture of a 252 feet long, 20 feet high Black Lives Matter banner outside Fenway Park Wednesday night.

As fully expected, Red Sox fans went scorched-Earth in the comment section to the team doing this.

It was earlier this year when the team backed up Torii Hunter, releasing a powerful statement after the former Major League Baseball player said he didn’t want to be traded to Boston due to racist taunts he heard at Fenway Park. “True change starts from within, and as we identify how we can do better, please know we are listening. We hear you, and we believe you,” part of the statement from June 10 said.
