Washington Redskins Finally (Kind Of) Admit Their Name Is Offensive — But They Have A DISGUSTING New Excuse To Keep Their Mascot

no title

This is unbelievable!

The Washington Redskins are trying to preserve the trademark for their highly offensive nickname, and the NFL team is now going to great lengths to defend their position.

On Friday, the team — along with controversial owner Dan Snyder — filed an opening brief in an appeals court in the hopes that they could keep their nickname after a court just ruled the name was highly offensive.

But this opening brief has to be seen to be believed!

It seems the 'Skins are no longer arguing that their name is not offensive, which had been their argument up to this point.

NOW they are conceding it is offensive to some — but they're arguing that since trademarks have been granted to dozens of other highly offensive (and NSFW) names, the Redskins ought to be allowed to keep theirs, too:

The Washington Redskins Are REFUSING To Change Their Team Name Even After Today’s Landmark Ruling! Read Their Official Statement HERE!

Filed under: Icky Icky PooZportzFootballNFLGIFs

redskins edit

C’mon, Washington! Could you BE any more stubborn?!?

It seems NOTHING can convince Dan Snyder, the owner of the Washington Redskins, to change his team’s terribly offensive name.

Not only are millions of Americans calling on the NFL squad to swap their name for something else, today the US Patent and Trademark Office canceled ALL of the Redskins’ trademarks after finding the name to be disparaging to Native Americans.

But the organization announced soon after that they will not do away with the well-known name and that today’s decision will have ZERO effect at all on their team!


Their arguments for why they want to keep calling themselves the Redskins are pretty shocking.

You can read the team’s entire official statement…AFTER THE JUMP!!!

Whoa dude! This is totally not chill at all!

Hershey has filed a trademark lawsuit against a Colorado-based medical marijuana company called Tincture Belle, which is known for making edible treats packed with sticky icky!

So what exactly is the issue? Well, Tincture Belle's weed-filled goodies are pretty much just knock-offs of classic candy bars like Almond Joy and Butterfinger! Except these ones are cleverly named Ganja Joy and Buddafinger!

Oh, and did we mention they're filled with weed??
