Washington Redskins Thanksgiving Tweet Causes Controversy

A tweet from the Washington Redskins is causing controversy for using its Native American logo in the tweet. 

The Native American imagery for sports teams has been controversial. 

In early November, Adidas offered to help high schools change mascots logos considered offensive to Native Americans.  Around 2,000 high schools across the U.S. have Native American mascots. 

That same week President Obama said the Washington Redskins should consider changing it's logo, according the Wall Street Journal.
