Missouri Sonic Apologizes For Offensive Chiefs-Redskins Sign [Pic]
A Sonic in Belton, Missouri, put up a sign on Sunday that caused quite a bit of controversy. The sign urged the Kansas City Chiefs to “scalp” the Washington Redskins and “Send Them 2 Reservation”. WHAT?!?
From Yahoo :
Patrick Lenow, vice president of public relations at Sonic, told NBC News, “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.”
Being that at the moment there’s a big debate going on in regards to the Washington Redskins name and whether or not they should change it, it’s really strange that anyone would think this would be a good idea.
