    Not sure I'd say it's racially insensitive, but it definitely is quality product insensitive.

    Exactly, I don't get why the Bosox couldn't have said that's why they were being discontinued.

    I totally agree, I was trying to be subtle in referencing the bobbleheads extremely pale lip color. Almost "blackface" in appearance IMO

    Original tweeet from the RedSox's it doesn't look as offensive.

    It was deemed unacceptable.


    The opinion ofv the red sox oenergy himself was:

    “It was an inaccurate portrayal of David. It doesn’t really look like David. No. 2, I personally thought it seemed to be an offensive portrayal of him and that the facial features were racially insensitive,” Kennedy said.


    So this isn't another pc run amok story. He didn't like it, he pulled the plug, he gave his reasons.

    Do we really need to debate his opinion about his product?

    Lol, I agree it's hideous. But why is it offensive? I'm missing something.

    I don't know about racist, but it looks like a bobble head made in an elementary art class. What a shitty looking product, quality wise.
