The Chicago Cubs have not spoken to the fan they banned indefinitely for allegedly flashing a white power symbol, and they have no interest in ever doing so, according to a Thursday report from ESPN’s Will Cain.
The organization announced Wednesday that they had banned an un-named fan who was seen flashing an “OK” symbol that has been associated with the white nationalist movement while seated above Doug Glanville, a black reporter. (RELATED: Alabama Police Officers Suspended For Making ‘Ok’ Sign)
The Cubs‘ decision to implement the ban came after an investigation, which found that the fan violated the organization’s code of conduct.
“I spoke to the Cubs,” Cain said on Twitter. “There is very little, if any, other evidence that this guy was flashing a white power symbol. No background, no social media posts, nothing. They also haven’t spoken to him and told me that they have no interest in hearing his side.”
Cain highlighted the absurdity of the situation in this informative tweet thread. (RELATED: Watch This Massive Brawl That Broke Out At Wrigley Field [Video])
The Cubs, like the world, have gone insane. In order of familiarity, the “ok” hand signal means:
