The Controversial Daily Show Segment On The Washington Football Team
“We learned later that some of the individuals who participated in the piece, they didn’t enjoy the experience. It’s something that happens a lot less than you would think,” Stewart said before airing Jason Jones' segment on the Washington football team name.
Last week, it came out that some of those fans who appeared on camera for last night's piece, reported by Jason Jones, felt threatened when confronted by actual Native Americans at one point. "Defamed" was the word they used to describe having to legitimize their feelings about the Washington football team name and mascot to eight people who were actually offended by it.
One woman called the police two days later, saying she felt threatened.
This is the second night in a row Washington has been lampooned for their usage of racial imagery and terminology in their team's name and logo.
