The assertion was a stretch even for some snowflakes out there and people sounded off over it.

The team attempted to combine its “Nooga” nickname and its logo of two eyes in a shirt design and evidently, a number of fans felt it resembled the N-word a bit too closely. After seeing the shirt for sale, someone naturally complained about it and it was eventually pulled.

“Oh no, chattanooga this isn’t gonna work,” one Twitter user carped going viral in the process.

Another user went viral after tweeting a picture of the shirt and commenting that it was, “Hilariously bad.”

Yet another contended that this “cannot be real.”

That was enough bad publicity to get the shirt yanked in today’s uber-politically correct world. But once the logo was out there, others copied it and are now selling it anyway.

Many people on Twitter can’t figure out what the whole upset was about in the first place. They defended the graphic, noting that it’s the city’s nickname combined with the team’s logo.

The Chattanooga Lookouts are a Double-A affiliate of the Cincinnati Reds. The Lookouts were founded in 1885 and adopted the team’s moniker after a fan vote in 1909. They have used the same nickname to this day with the exception of 1943, when they were known as the Montgomery Rebels playing that year in Montgomery, Alabama.

Fox News reported, “This is the second stint being an affiliate of the Reds. They were a part of the club’s farm system from 1988 to 2008, before time with the Los Angeles Dodgers and Minnesota Twins up until 2018.”

The censoring of the shirt really has people riled up. They are getting fed up with leftists taking offense to every little thing:
