Cubs Spokesman Says Fans Went Too Far on Social Media

The Chicago Cubs weren’t surprised by the backlash from the unveiling of their first official mascot of the modern era, but a team spokesman said some critics went too far with reactions on social media.

“I’m disappointed at some of the unfortunate images that went from negative to despicable,” Julian Green, vice president of communications and community affairs, said Tuesday. “There are some folks that had strong reactions to the mascot, but at the same time, there are folks that see what we’re trying to do. It’s strictly for kids and family entertainment.”
