A liberal blogger hired by the Washington Redskins to defend their controversial name has resigned after just two weeks on the job.
“So I’m going to send in my resignation to the Redskins,” Ben Tribbett wrote on Twitter. “Hopefully that allows debate to move back to where it should be.”
Tribbett once pointed out that the brother of Redskins general manager Bruce Allen used a racial slur, "macaca."
It recently came to light that Tribbett made some questionable Tweets while gambling in Las Vegas four years ago.
“An older native american guy just accused me of cheating and pulled some stuff out of his pocket to put some kind of spell on me,” Tribbett wrote. “Epic. .. Just took Chief for his last 300. I’d call it a scalping but that seems uncalled for.”
