Washington Redskins spark controversy with tone-deaf Thanksgiving tweet

The Washington Redskins on Twitter: A Thanksgiving Tradition

Thanksgiving is a wonderful time of year for family and overeating. But the role Native Americans played in the nearly 400-year-old tradition isn't glamorous.

That's not stopping the Washington Redskins from celebrating, though ... And you thought your drunk uncle was awkward ...



Twitterusers were quick to poke fun at the Redskins' ironic tweet, but the Redskins' Thanksgiving wishes go back years.



So does this mean the Redskins will finally change their name?

"Redskins team owner says he will never change the Redskins name," WJLA reports.

Washington Redskins spark controversy with tone-deaf Thanksgiving tweet
Nothing says thanksgiving like established bigotry. #HailToTheRacists https://t.co/VxraDdVpMF
"Happy Thanksgiving!" *continues to have a racist mascot of the people the holiday is actually celebrating* https://t.co/BnK6EnYeL7
Now we just need Trump to hit us with a "Feliz Navidad" and we'll be good @Redskins
@Redskins remember how you continue to disrespect half of the people that were at Thanksgiving? Neat.
