In what has to be the most shameful in the long line of efforts to remove Native American mascots from high school athletic programs, Adidas now seeks to 'bribe' high schools into changing their names if they have anything to do with Native American culture.
Wednesday it was announced the Cleveland Indians are reportedly going to be sued for $9 billion dollars over their Chief Wahoo logo. Previously, the Washington Redskins have been under fire for their logo as well.
It's surprisingly rough being a mascot these days. Sure, they're the awesome side entertainment at sporting events, but that puts a heck of a lot of pressure on them. Think about it-- mascots are constantly forced to cartwheel on ledges, do backflips in front of thousands of people and just be downright stupid. It can be awful, especially when things go wrong. Cue: mascot fails.
