Red Sox Fans Triggered Over LGBT Pride, Call for Straight Night

The baseball team painted its logo rainbow for Pride Month, leaving some straight fans upset.

For Thursday night's game, the Boston Red Sox painted their logo rainbow on the pitcher's mound to show their support for the LGBT community, which created a strong backlash on their social media.

Although many enjoyed the gesture of inclusion, the Red Sox had an avalanche of antigay comments on social media from fans who are angry the team hosted a Pride Night.

Some commenters called for a "Straight Pride Night," as if most nights in sports aren't for straight fans.

One poster even went as far to say, "Gentleman, the one safe haven we still had is gone. It was a good run but now it's over. R.I.P. sport."

However, many were proud of the show of solidarity with queer fans and athletes. They even trolled back.

One socially conscious straight man put it best:
