Cleveland hospital asks staff not to wear Indians' 'Chief Wahoo' logo

CLEVELAND (WJW) -- Tribe fever is taking over Northeast Ohio as the Cleveland Indians march toward winning a World Series title. But one local hospital is asking its employees to avoid wearing the team's most notable, yet controversial, logo when they show their team spirit.

Tuesday was the first game of the World Series match-up against the Chicago Cubs. Employees of the MetroHealth System were encouraged to wear red, white and blue colors to work to demonstrate their support for the Tribe. But in a memo to employees, management requested that workers express their pride respectfully..."without images that are counter to the inclusive, welcoming, affirming and respectful culture we are trying to build here at MetroHealth."

The memo goes on to state "Please refrain from wearing Chief Wahoo branded apparel."

Employees wearing their Indians gear were invited to take a photograph on campus, forming a "C", which was shared on the MetroHealth Facebook page.

Tina Arundel, manager of media relations, tells Fox 8 that employees were not banned from wearing apparel with Chief Wahoo. She says they asked them to be respectful, one of the medical systems core values.

"We're all one big family of Cleveland Indians fans and we're asking our employees to be respectful," she said in a statement.
