A few teams across the sports world are under fire for nicknames considered to be racially insensitive. The Atlanta Braves released a statement to season ticket holders saying, "Changing the name of the Braves is not under consideration". However, "The Chop" a celebration in which fans participate in at Truist Park is reportedly under reconsideration by the organization. The Washington football team and the Cleveland Indians are two of the more high profile teams currently considering a name change.
