The New York Mets said the team will stop featuring players on the kiss cam after some fans complained the stunt was homophobic.
The kiss cam will continue, said Jay Horwitz, vice president of media relations, but it will no longer feature players in the heart-shaped frame in an apparent joke.
“We have, on occasion, included players from opposing teams in our popular in-game kiss cam feature. While intended to be lighthearted, we unintentionally offended some. We apologize for doing so and no longer will include players in the feature. Our organization is wholly supportive of fostering an inclusive and respectful environment at games,” the organization said Wednesday.
