Redskins’ Twitter attack on Harry Reid backfires

SHARE Redskins’ Twitter attack on Harry Reid backfires

The Redskins asked their fans to tweet at Senate Majority Leader Sen. Harry Reid (D-NV) using #RedskinsPride on Thursday to tell Reid what the team name means to them. As you’d expect, it didn’t go as planned for the Redskins.

Reid has been leading the charge in Congress to push the NFL to mandate a name change.

But instead, people on Twitter decided to tell the Redskins just how offensive the name is.

Here’s a sample:
