“Cancel Deez Nuts” and “Chief Wahoo Did Your Mom” banners are reportedly flying behind planes around Cleveland today for the Indians Opening Day festivities, according to locals on the ground who have spotted a variety of messages possibly cooked up in retaliation for a variety of grievances.
Headdresses and face paint have been banned from Progressive Field as the team moves further and further away from its history with Chief Wahoo logo.
“Abusive or inappropriate language or conduct deemed disorderly, unruly or disruptive including inappropriate dress may constitute grounds for ejection or refusal of admission,” the team said in a March 31 release. “This includes headdresses and face paint styled in a way that references or appropriates American Indian cultures and traditions.
“Inappropriate or offensive images, words, dress or face paint must be covered or removed, and failure to do so may constitute grounds for ejection or refusal of admission.”
It appears fakemaskusa.com is behind the banners. On its website, Fake Mask USA says “we’re just a few dudes from Ohio on a mission to destroy cancel culture and help people breathe better.”
