But, did it really cause all that much uproar? Did it? All I've heard is that some people said the Sox missed the point about the meaning of Memorial Day and the team tweeted a simple apology.

Has this been all over the media? Are their protests at the Cell? Calls to boycott the Sox over this?

There's no "uproar" over this other than the debate going on in this thread.

White Sox Baseball
# of teams with a longer playoff drought = 3:
San Diego (2006), Miami (2003), Seattle (2001)

# of teams with fewer playoff appearances since 1995 = 5:
Kansas City* (2), Toronto** (1), Miami (2), Washington (2), Milwaukee (2)

# of Sox seasons in the this decade that were arguably dismal failures = 4:
2011, 2013, 2014, 2015

Conclusion: Blame Sox fans for not showing up to enough games

* back to back AL Champs, WS Champs
** advanced to ALCS this year
