We understand why Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf may be a little upset.
The city lost two major sports team, and potentially a third one, to the “gross desert” of Las Vegas.
In an interview with ABC7, a local news station in the Bay Area, Schaaf divulged her unfiltered feelings about Vegas, and let’s just say that Sin City locals are not too happy about her comments.
“You’ve got to be much more environmentally focused when you are developing on the precious California coastline than in the gross desert of Las Vegas,” Schaaf said to ABC7 regarding the Oakland Athletics’ potential relocation to our city (#FreeTheAs).
After this interview, social media ignited with comebacks from Vegas residents, who shared many memes, humorous posts and sassy responses to the mayor’s comment.
We also feel the need to defend our city. Vegas is many things, but we definitely won’t tolerate slander from California. Here are top ten reasons why Vegas is better than Oakland.
