Fans of the team say they were misled after being confronted by activists on a yet-to-air show.
this article is trying SO HARD to be supportive of the ignorant turds who think that using a racial slur as a team name is ‘honoring them’ but oh man, no amount of spin doctoring can make these people not look racist and entitled
especially this lady, who takes the whiny white person award for the day:
“This goes way beyond mocking. Poking fun is one thing, but that’s not what happened,” said Kelli O’Dell, 56… “It was disingenuous. The Native Americans accused me of things that were so wrong. I felt indanger.I didn’t consent to that. I am going to be defamed.”
apparently being called on racist horseshit is now ‘being defamed’ hahaha ok but then it gets better
O’Dell said she felt trapped. “I was told that I was ‘psychologically damaging Native American children,’ and every time we tried to say something, we got cut off,” she said.
god forbid that the actual native people get talking priority in this discussion oh no how threatening. it’s almost as threatening as a racial slur that started as a slang word for a trophy kept for murdering your racial group oh wait
O’Dell said she e-mailed Polidoro asking that her consent waiver be destroyed, but he wrote back saying: “…we can’t destroy any releases & we have consent to air everything we shot.”
Two days later, O’Dell said she called D.C. police and tried to submit a police report, but authorities told her no crime had been committed.
help 911 I fucked up and signed a waiver giving a tv studio permission to put my racist bullshit on blast
