Straight Outta Compton

Published: August 18, 2015

Straight Outta Compton, “Straight Outta Compton” has been widely released for just a few days, but already keen-eyed sports buffs have noticed a factual error in the movie.

The opening scene is set in 1986, but Eazy-E is wearing a black White Sox hat with a logo the team didn’t fully adopt until 1991. (The Sox did wear the black uniforms a few games late in the 1990 season.)

Compton review tomorrow. Biggest problem? Eazy E wearing the Black White Sox hat in 1986 in opening scene. Logo didn’t debut until 1991.

The mistake hasn’t bothered viewers too much, as the movie has a 96 percent approval rating on “Rotten Tomatoes” and topped the weekend box offices.

The inaccuracies in Straight Outta Compton were small but that White Sox hat slapped me dead in the face.

The White Sox cap is included in a New Era hat collection inspired by Compton.

Let’s face it, the ’91 brim theatrically flows much better than this 1986 model.
