An unfortunately named city shares its name with Jerry Sandusky, the former Penn State assistant coach convicted of sexually assaulting 10 boys. Sandusky, Ohio, is best known as the home of Cedar Point, one of the top amusement parks in the world. Or, at least, it was.
Now people can’t help but associate the city with the horrific crimes committed by Jerry Sandusky.
One local resident said “it’s been particularly difficult for her friend Jerry – Jerry from Sandusky.” Oof.
Following Sandusky’s conviction Friday, the Twitterverse reached a consensus: the city of Sandusky needs a new name.
Just about any name would be a step up at this point.
Or better yet, how about Jerry Sandusky changes his name so the Ohio city can be left in peace?
