The premise of the episode was that the gang wants to crowd fund a startup company, and had to think of a name. Cartman suggests the Washington Redskins, which is available now that the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office has cancelled the Redskins trademark on grounds that the team's name and logo are disparaging to Native Americans.
This enrages Redskins owner Dan Snyder, who demands Cartman drop the name. Cartman responds that when he named his company the Washington Redskins it was "out of deep appreciation of your team and your people," mocking Snyder's controversial real-life argument that "Redskins" is a tribute to American Indians.
South Park released the scene with Snyder and Cartman in a promo that ran Sunday in the Washington DC market during the Redskins Eagles game, and then hit the internet. In the original, Robert Griffin III is standing alongside coach Jay Gruden behind Snyder. However, in the version that aired last night the injured RG3 had been replaced by his backup Kirk Cousins.
Although the Redskins lost on Sunday, Cousins threw for over 400 yards with three touchdowns and many Skins fans are hoping Gruden makes Cousins the permanent starter. Now that South Park has also discarded him, Griffin should really be getting nervous.
