WASHINGTON — Chris Rock has long held the name ‘Redskins’ is racist, saying so in a standup routine (NSFW: Language) for his first comedy album in 1991, but the comedian reiterated that belief during Thursday Night Football’s Redskins-Giants game, with one key addition.

Rock then issued a correction to his previous tweet.

He also later walked back his comment about the team being racist for its treatment of Robert Griffin III.

It was a rough night for the Washington Redskins. Thanks to Dan Steinberg for sharing.
