The online backlash was quick, and it was fierce. Have a look:

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— HumblyConceited (@HumblyConceited) 1448556046.0
