Washington Redskins’ #RedskinsPride campaign backfires horribly
The Redskins’ social media team just made a big mistake.
The Washington Redskins’ social media team just made a big mistake. On Thursday afternoon, the @Redskins account asked Twitter users to tell a senator what they think of the team’s controversial name using the hashtag #RedskinsPride.

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid has been working in Washington to get the Redskins to change its name. Even President Obama has spoken out against the derogatory term. The fans who love the team but hate what it stands for have been vocal on social media—which is why #RedskinsPride had exactly the reaction you would expect.
