    (CNN) —It was to be a night of Wonder Bread on burgers with mayo, a jumping contest and a group watching of "Friends," but "Caucasian Heritage Night" will never be.

    The Orem Owlz, a minor league baseball team in Utah, said it had long ago scheduled the white appreciation event, which was meant to be a lighthearted event, according to a statement.
    Within hours of posting a promotion Friday and two days after the church shootings in South Carolina, the team canceled the event after social media lit up.

    "We understand, in light of recent tragic events, that our intentions have been misconstrued. For that, we sincerely apologize," read the team's official statement.

    I don't think the event itself is offensive, especially if it is a joke among the black and white people of the community. I also think that it was good taste to cancel or postpone it in lilght of the shooting in Charleston.
