For the last few years, the Cleveland Indians have been getting some backlash from the PC police for there logo, “Chief Wahoo.” The logo, for a long time, has been tied with the Indians, but recently has been considered insensitive and racist. Recently there was a group of people protesting the logo out side the stadium before one of the Indians home games. The Indians are not the only team getting backlash for their logo or team name. The Washington Redskins and Atlanta Braves are getting attacked by the PC police as well to change their’s as well.
Let’s see what Twitter has to say about this.
The Cleveland Indians should be able to keep "Chief Wahoo", stop claiming to be offended in the name of others

I'll just buy Chief Wahoo gear and wear it everywhere if MLB makes the Indians get rid of the logo altogether.

Chief Wahoo still calls Cleveland home and that’s the way it should stay! More: https://t.co/guakCFMDKJ

Hey BMC fans, do you think it's time for Chief Wahoo to go? Or should he remain the mascot/face of the team? #TrendingAroundTheWatercooler

Looks like it's a toss up either way. Some people want to get rid of the logo and some people want to keep it. Ultimately the MLB Commissioner and the Indians have the final say. Time will only tell if a change will be made.
