They could look at “RoboCop,” note that it portrays the city as an utter hellscape that is so rotten and crime-ridden that the entire plot is put in motion via a scheme to literally build a new city over the ruins of the old, and say “no thanks, we’d rather not be associated with that.” If they did that, I’m not sure many people could reasonably blame them.
But Detroit doesn’t care. Indeed, they care so little that they embrace the thing. At least the Tigers did last night with “RoboCop Day.” They even had the guy throw out the first pitch:
