WASHINGTON, Sept. 22 (UPI) -- Washington Redskins' linebacker Ryan Kerrigan said Monday he can't decide if the new South Park episode mocking the hypocritical refusal to change the team name "an honor or a diss."
The episode, titled "Go Fund Yourself," features the character Cartman naming his new company "The Washington Redskins" which leads to him making huge profits. Three characters meant to be quarterback Robert Griffin III, team owner Dan Snyder and first-year head coach Jay Gruden come to Cartman to voice their grievances over the "offense."
"Don't you see that when you call your organization 'The Washington Redskins,' it's offensive to us," said the cartoon meant to be Snyder.
The team has adamantly refused to change their name despite it being called racist and offensive toward Native Americans. The U.S. Patent office revoked the trademark of the "Washington Redskins" because the name was deemed racially offensive, but the team is appealing the decision.
Kerrigan can't decide if being featured on the popular adult cartoon is cause for celebration or offense.
"I saw the tittle thing they put out," Kerrigan said. "I really don't know if that's an honor or a diss."
