Dan Snyder and the Washington Redskins are backed right into a corner about their offensive team name.
The Washington Redskins may be forget about, with Dan Snyder facing outside pressure from top sponsors such as for instance Nike, FedEx and Pepsi, forcing his hand for the first time. Despite decades of opposition from Native American groups and the general public, Snyder held strong, often trotting out cronies and debateable studies to back up his point that the oppressed failed to, in fact, value such a cause.
In the end, there’s no guarantee that cooler heads will prevail, but Snyder are at least considering some alternatives. Twitter, however, took another approach, revealing some of the funniest potential names that Washington definitely should not take into consideration. WARNING: Some of these Twitter suggestions are NSFW.
Twitter had some curious alternate names for the Washington football team.
Well, we realize one option that absolutely won’t work.
Leave it to The Onion to put things in perspective.
Well, if there were ever a time to embrace one’s true self, it’s now. Washington has slightly higher hopes under Ron Rivera, however.
Karen won’t be happy about this, particularly when she has to consider it while wearing a mask.
The final thing we need could be the President tweeting about this debate. Check your timelines, folks, he’s on the loose.
Inappropriate, but at the least not racist.
Something tells me Dan Snyder isn’t gonna go for that certain.
Still offensive, folks! Come on, we can do better.
Similar to Bomani Jones’ “Caucasians” T-shirt, something informs me this won’t go over too well.
Odd…but still better than the present version!
FINALLY, something we can all agree on.
Funny tweets or maybe not, it’s time for Snyder to come to the final outcome he need to have reached decades ago. Change the name. It’s about damn time.
