CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) - Destination Cleveland has put together some goodie bags to welcome the TBS sports reporters to the city. The network upset many locals by using a picture of a burning river in their coverage of the Indians ALDS sweep, leading to Cleveland 19 starting the hashtag "#CLEvsTBS," which trended locally and had hundreds of thousands of impressions.
The bags include a shirt that says, "Cleveland. It's not that bad, have a beer," and a bottle of Great Lakes' Burning River Pale Ale.
"Cleveland is a great city and we regret the use of the image," a Turner Sports spokesperson said in a statement to Cleveland 19. "We look forward to putting the focus back on an exciting ALCS."
