8 Twitter Responses From #NewRedskinsName Following Trademark Decision

Following the Patent and Trademark office’s decision to drop the trademark on the term Redskins, Twitter offered up new names with #NewRedskinsName.

Within a few hours of announcing the Washington Redskins lost their trademarks at the U.S. Patent and Trademark office on the grounds that the name is disparaging – Twitter erupted with a hilarious hashtag #NewRedskinsName.

Thousands of tweeters gave it their best in the hopes that Dan Snyder might choose a new team name even though he has been quoted as saying he will NEVER change the name, or it would be changed “over his dead body.”

Here are some of the most retweeted and commented on contributions – If you don’t see enough, believe it there are thousands more on Twitter.
