Reactions to Redskins 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.
Have you no sense of decency. https://t.co/RiA0M7s0L6
Thanks. Change the name. https://t.co/2JYB1wxab2
