A restaurant in Buffalo, New York, is facing a backlash after a recent social media post on Indigenous Peoples Day. Of course, there has been a movement over the past two years to replace “Columbus Day” with “Indigenous People Day” with over 100 cities across the United States officially recognizing the change.
Following the Buffalo Bills’ win over the Kansas City Chiefs, local West New York restaurant The Sterling on Hertel released a controversial caption that drew backlash. The popular restaurant is known for its karaoke on the North Buffalo scene.
The position was:
Happy Indigenous Peoples Day!
Let’s celebrate a Bills victory over the
Chiefs of Indigenous Peoples. Isn’t it great that we beat these bosses and stomped on their arrowhead. Nothing like silencing those silly little war drums that Chiefs fans were beating at Arrowhead Stadium. Christopher Columbus would be proud! #BillsMafia
The post was greeted with comments such as “I’ll take comments no one asked for” for $ 1,000, Alex “,” Disgusting “or” Finally another reason to never return to this place. “
At the time of posting this, it appeared Sterling’s Facebook page had been deactivated.
In sports, the nicknames of some teams have become a hot topic and to say the least controversial. In the National Football League, they saw the Washington Redskins drop their nickname after 2019 and simply use a generic name “Washington Football Team”.
Here are some popular teams in sports that still cause controversy with their name: Cleveland Indians, Kansas City Chiefs, Atlanta Braves, Chicago Blackhawks, among others.
