MLB, US Navy Remove 'Pride Month' Logos from Social Media One Day after June 1

Sam Dorman : Jun 6, 2023

"Some of the woke companies that turned their logo into pride flags last June haven't done it yet this time around. They've seen the power of conservative boycotts, and they are running scared. We are so back!" -Rep. Lauren Boebert

Twitter accounts like "End Wokeness" noted the seemingly abrupt shift, which came amid ongoing controversy surrounding the institutions' embrace of homosexuality. By June 2, the MLB had reinstated its original logo on Twitter in place of the modified one featuring a rainbow flag behind a baseball player silhouette. The US Navy similarly had a Pride-themed banner photo and profile picture on Twitter but it was gone by June 2. The service's Instagram profile also lost its pride-themed photo and according to the Daily Mail, individual posts were removed from both its Twitter and Instagram. 

In a statement to The Hill, the Navy didn't address the removals but affirmed its interest in so-called Pride Month. 

"The US Navy posted graphics in support of the start of Pride month to honor the service, commitment, and sacrifice of the LGBTQ+ Service members and personnel who volunteer to defend our country," a spokesperson reportedly said. "As we do with all Defense Equal Opportunity Management Institute (DEOMI) observance months, we will look for additional opportunities to celebrate the diversity and strength of our Sailors. Members of the LGBTQ+ community serve their country, fully contribute to the DoD mission, and deserve a welcoming environment which enables them to reach their full potential."

The MLB, meanwhile, reportedly told Newsweek that it always planned to celebrate "pride" on June 1 and that its replacement picture on June 2 was intended to celebrate Lou Gherig Day. It's unclear why, as of June 3, the MLB's Twitter photo still lacks a "pride" logo while other entities have continued to keep a pride logo on their profile. 

The removal comes amid mounting tension surrounding the two entities' embrace of LGBT "pride," as well as multiple boycotts against brands that backed homosexuality and "transgenderism."

Last month, the Los Angeles Dodgers shocked Americans as news surfaced that the major league team had invited the "Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence," a blasphemous group of drag queens, to receive an award on June 16, the feast of the Sacred Heart.

On Twitter, some suggested the MLB change was evidence that conservatives were scoring wins in the culture war... Subscribe for free to Breaking Christian News here
