South Park has done it again! The Comedy Central show, which routinely nails its handling of hot-button issues, has taken on the Washington Redskins trademark debate in the promo for its 18th season.
In the promo, animated versions of Redskins owner Dan Snyder and player Robert Griffin III ask Eric Cartman to stop using the team's name despite the recent loss of the trademark. The sketch then pokes fun at the NFL's disregard for using a name that many view as an insulting ethnic stereotype. "You have no right to use our name to get attention," Snyder says. "Don't you see that when you call your organization the Washington Redskins it's offensive to us?"
South Park returns on Wednesday, Sept. 24 at 10/9c on Comedy Central.
