Chris Rock rips Redskins over logo, treatment of RG3

Chris Rock baseballComedian Chris Rock is the latest to weigh-in on the Washington Redskins’ logo, and he also has some thoughts on their treatment of Robert Griffin III.

The native New Yorker, who is actually a Jets fan, was watching Thursday’s game between the ‘Skins and New York Giants and decided to send a tweet about the Redskins’ logo and backup QB.

He then admitted calling RG3 a racist is an overstatement but still rallied for the team to cut the quarterback:

It’s hard to disagree with Rock on both accounts. Yes, the depiction in the team logo and nickname is racist. And yes, the team should just release Griffin already. Why would you turn a former franchise QB and Heisman Trophy winner into your scout team defensive back? Let him get a fresh start elsewhere already.
