The President Reacts Negatively To The Cleveland Indians Changing Their Name (TWEET)
A name change is not only coming for a team in the NFL, but also in Major League Baseball.
The baseball team in Cleveland will be dropping “Indians” from its name, according to a report from The New York Times and later confirmed by other news outlets.
The decision to change the team name could be announced as soon as this week, the Times reported.
The decision upset a lot of people, including the President.
On Sunday, Donald Trump took to Twitter and reacted necgatively to the name change.
“Oh no! What is going on? This is not good news, even for “Indians”. Cancel culture at work!” the outgoing President of the United States tweeted on Sunday night.
Cleveland previously removed its “Chief Wahoo” logo, a racist caricature of a Native American character, from its team uniforms after the 2018 season.
The Indians are coming off a 35-25 season in 2020 that ended with a playoff loss to the Yankees.
