Little Guillermo Cried "Wah Wah Wah" All The Way Home

Baseball Mascot Gets New Name After 'PorkChop' Is Deemed Offensive
Two days after naming its mascot "PorkChop," the Philadelphia Phillies' new Triple-A affiliate abruptly dropped the moniker after receiving complaints from Hispanics that it was offensive. [...]

General Manager Kurt Landes said he heard from several Hispanics who said PorkChop was derogatory.

"We were really unaware of any negative connotations with the word 'pork chop,"' he said. "If it offended a few, it's a few too many."

Guillermo Lopez, vice president of the Latino Leadership Alliance, said he was called "pork chop" when he worked at Bethlehem Steel decades ago.
Let it go, Guillermo.

Good grief. If crap like this keeps up I might have to apologize to the Muslims for all the times I've called them pantywaists for overreacting in the name of their religion. It looks like Americans are well on their way to big wussy status as well. It's a baseball mascot for pity's sake! Grow up!
