“Wishing you and your family a Happy #Thanksgiving,” a tweet sent out Thursday from the team’s official Twitter account read, along with a graphic that included the team’s logo.

Not every response was negative. Some defended the team’s tweet, calling out the “PC folks” who are “hypocrites.”
@Redskins PC folks ruin everything. They're mad at the Redskins logo and name but yet they'll celebrate Thanksgiving. Hypocrites
