Social Media Backlash for Pierre the Pelican

The other day when I was browsing nola.com I happened to see this article about the new mascot for the New Orleans Pelicans. I thought the article was humorous, and it perfectly captures what we have learned in class about how social media can light a fire to a seemingly local topic. Pierre the Pelican has become a nationally recognized figure, though not necessarily in a good way. After reading this, I started to wonder if the Pelicans will alter Pierre’s appearance in any way. I personally hope so!

  1. Even though most comments are ‘negative’ this still might help the Pelicans, since they are getting a lot of attention (like we saw with the snugy).
