Boxing promoter/radio host/jack of many trades Rock Newman received one of the golden tickets to the wedding of Robert Griffin III, which may or may not have been officially presented by Bed, Bath & Beyond.
Of course Newman is tweeting from the event, and of course Dan Steinberg of the Washington Post is retweeting the tweets. And course we’re reading the tweets.
One tweet links to a Facebook post with this observation from Newman: ”I admire RG3 and am pleased to b attending his wedding to begin momentarily. Let no one get it twisted, as I sit very near Dan Snyder, I despise the RACIST, DISRESPECTFUL name of the team whose jersey he wears.”
Snyder has vowed to “NEVER” change the name. Griffin recently posted a message on his Twitter page lamenting “the tyranny of political correctness,” prompting some to suspect he was complaining about the opposition to the team name.
