Okay, NFL… You think it’s time to get this name changed yet?
There has been a lot of debate over the racialness of the Washington Redskins team name, and a Sonic Drive-In made things worse.
The Kansas City Chiefs played Washington on Sunday, and prior to the game, this message (above) showed up at a Belton, Missouri Sonic. It was only there for a few hours, but garnered a lot of attention in the meantime.
The vice president of public relations at Sonic, Patrick Lenow, said:
"The remarks posted on this message board were wrong, offensive and unacceptable. In a misguided effort to support his football team an independent franchise owner allowed passion to override good judgment. The owner has reinforced with his employees the boundaries of what is acceptable and unacceptable. On behalf of the franchise owner and our entire brand we apologize for the offensive remarks."
At least no one is saying it was anything but bad, bad, bad!
