SAN FRANCISCO (KRON) — San Francisco natives will not like this.
The outrage on social media began Saturday morning when an SF Chronicle writer tweeted a photo of a Giants t-shirt by Nike at the Dugout Store. The shirt had “San Fran” written in all caps and in orange — prompting over 150 replies to the tweet.
Natives say “San Fran” is an unacceptable term to call San Francisco. “The City” or “SF” would be considered other acceptable terms.
On a side note, there’s an interesting case with “Frisco.” There’s a divide between the use of the term, but a lot of it is due to age and which generation the native grew up in. Some natives use it, and some can’t stand it.
