As for the trademark ruling, she joined the victorious plaintiffs in their celebration.
I was thrilled to see the ruling of the patent office. It is way past time that the damage in this name causes is called out and not supported. To those who say the government is interfering with business, I would say, in this case, ‘Good!’ The government outlawed human trafficking and slavery. The government outlawed Jim Crow laws. Only a few would say it was bad that the government made such actions illegal.
Of course, not everyone was pleased with the ruling. Twitter reactions revealed the opinion of some team fans and commentators.
The Redskins trademark decision is blatantly content non-neutral and unconstitutional. Absurd and authors should be fired

We should focus less on “Is Redskins Offensive” and more on, “Hey, the gov’t just outlawed speech IT deemed offensive.” YIKES.
