BOSTON (CBS) – A Boston Red Sox legend is taking heat for how he marked the team’s loss to the Cleveland Indians Monday night.
Pedro Martinez, an analyst for TBS, let out a war whoop during the postgame broadcast. He said it was his way to “pay tribute” to the team.
The ace’s actions were immediately blasted on social media for being an offensive stereotype about Native Americans.
Sure enough, Martinez took to Twitter to issue an apology later on Monday night, saying that the gesture was misunderstood.
