Baseball team cancels 'Caucasian Heritage Night'
Twitter explodes with angry comments
By Christina Zdanowicz CNN
It was to be a night of Wonder Bread on burgers with mayo, a jumping contest and a group watching of "Friends," but "Caucasian Heritage Night" will never be.
The Orem Owlz, a minor league baseball team in Utah, were quickly criticized Friday night for scheduling a white appreciation event in the wake of the Charleston shooting. The team said the promotion was intended to be a lighthearted event, according to a statement.
Within hours of posting the promotion, the team canceled the event.
