Cancel Midget Wrestling in Akron

This petition had 25 supporters

On August 25th, 2016, the Akron Rubber Ducks will be holding a promotional event after the baseball game which includes "Midget Wrestling". The phrase "Midget" is an antiquated and often offensive term that should have no place in today's society. As such, no organization that brands itself as family friendly should use potentially hurtful language in their promotional material. What sort of message is this sending to our children and to the members of our community?
