Gotta think the Braves choosing not to play the Chop music while a Native American player is in the game is more revealing than they would like, correct? https://t.co/YxDrsGU1hI
keep in mind that the chop isn’t some time honored braves tradition dating back to boston. it’s something deion sanders brought with him.
You can take away the tomahawks but the chop will never die
And..... it took all of 2 pitches for Braves fans to do the Chop
No Tomahawks for #Braves fans today. Team said it’s out of respect for Ryan Helsley who called the Chop “insulting.” They will limit the Chop and it’s music/graphics for today’s game and when Helsley is in the game. #NLDS
I lost the tweet in my TL but someone brought up a valid point. The chop is a Seminole thing and has nothing to do with the Cherokee people. Perhaps Helsey needs a history lesson?
are considering suspending the chop?! What the hell man?! I’m Northern Paiute and think it’s awesome! I’m seriously so pissed at all these offended little babies.
Braves fans love to pile on colored athletes on their own team and shout to the mountains that there's no racism involved. Then a dude is asked about the chop and he provides his thoughts. Now fans want to openly mock him by doing the chop directly at him.
Not racist at all.
Don't imagine the Cardinals will walk off the field if Braves fans do the chop at Helsley, but they should.
The Braves aren't handing out foam tomahawks, which is literally the least they could possibly do and still be seen as "doing something" about the chop. https://t.co/3wXoKl8cNN
I may be reading this statement wrong, but it seems like the Braves are acknowledging the chop and chant are offensive and racist, but will only refrain from encouraging both when a Native American player is in the game. https://t.co/KYRawhruXd
The Braves have stopped the chop in deference to Cardinals pitcher Ryan Helsley who considers it “caveman-type" behavior https://t.co/DiurSPOOgA
Maybe the Braves shouldn’t have abandoned the chop?
You cannot get rid of the chop in a game 5 that has to be done game 1
This is what we get for removing the chop
Woke Baseball Twitter in a shambles over the Chop is incredibly telling
Apparently since we have limited the chop for them, we are just going to let them walk all over us at the start of the game?? 🤦🏻♀️🤦🏻♀️
Lmao I swear braves fans missing the point with the chop, it’s offensive to native Americans what’s hard to understand abt that, it’s 2019 n the chop is pretty tone deaf
Will be interesting to see how many fans still do the chop, even without foam tomahawks or the music. I’m guessing it will be a lot. Not a great look for fans, but at least the team took some action. https://t.co/xrP8wsTV9M
Silence the chop early. Let’s. Goooo.
Replaced the chop with the choke
Am I the only one who felt uncomfortable doing “the chop” at a @Braves
Let's see if 50K Braves fans need prompting to do the chop. Since when does a player on an opposing team get to stop the home team's fans' cheers because they find them offensive? Seriously? Imagine going to any professional sporting event and not being able to cheer as you wish
