Okay where do we start — the ‘chalky white’ lips or the foamy look that the lips have? Maybe it’s the big ass teeth or the really light skin, but super dark bobblehead face?

The Boston Red Sox on Tuesday canceled a David Ortiz bobblehead giveaway — five hours before their game against the Yankees because the bobbleheads were deemed inaccurate and racially offensive.

The bobblehead depicted Ortiz holding a microphone — as it’s supposed to be a tribute to his famed speech following the Boston Marathon bombings in 2013.

Team president Sam Kennedy saw the bobblehead for the first time Tuesday and reportedly made the decision to cancel the promotion.
Good for you Sam!
