The latest target of the cancel culture crowd is Jeep.

Yes, Jeep,

Pretty surprising right?

Considering during the Super Bowl they put out an ad with Bruce Springsteen that aimed for Trump supporters to “reunite with America”.

Well, anyway a Cherokee Nation chief has come out and said it’s time for Jeep to stop using the name “Grand Cherokee” on their vehicles.

Chief Chuck Hoskin, Jr. in a statement directed towards Jeep was quoted saying “it does not honor us by having our name plastered on the side of a car,”.

Jeep has responded to the chief in a statement by saying their vehicle model Grand Cherokee was named to  “celebrate Native American people”.

The AP News got the full scoop, see what they had to share:

It is time for Jeep to stop using the Cherokee Nation’s name on its Cherokee and Grand Cherokee SUVs, the chief of the Oklahoma-based tribe said.

Chief Chuck Hoskin, Jr. said in a statement first reported by Car & Driver magazine that he believes corporations and sports teams should stop using Native American names, images and mascots as nicknames or on their products.

“I’m sure this comes from a place that is well-intended, but it does not honor us by having our name plastered on the side of a car,” Hoskin said.

Kristin Starnes, a spokeswoman for Jeep’s parent company, Amsterdam-based Stellantis, said in a statement that the vehicle name was carefully selected “and nurtured over the years to honor and celebrate Native American people for their nobility, prowess and pride.”

NBC reported the story too:

The chief of the Cherokee Nation wants Jeep to stop using the tribe’s name on its vehicles.

“I’m sure this comes from a place that is well-intended, but it does not honor us by having our name plastered on the side of a car,” Chuck Hoskin Jr., principal chief of the Cherokee Nation, said in a statement.

A Cherokee Nation spokesperson confirmed the statement, which was provided to Car and Driver and published Monday. It was sent to the auto magazine after an inquiry in January.

“Our vehicle names have been carefully chosen and nurtured over the years to honor and celebrate Native American people for their nobility, prowess and pride,” Stellantis, the company that owns Jeep, said in a statement.

Two Jeep vehicles use the name, the Cherokee and the Grand Cherokee, both of which are sport utility vehicles. The original Cherokee was launched in 1974.

It’s almost like the far-left is never satisfied.

If Jeep named a car model after  after the Pilgrims the left would probably cry out that Jeep is naming a model after a “racist” group of people.
