Now called “The Washington Football Team,” the NFL team required employees to sign NDAs so that they could not speak out and stir the controversy over the former name that that has been decried by some as racist.
“I’m joining @TIMESUPNOW,” Amy Schumer tweeted on Sunday, “and sending a message to the @WashingtonNFL team demanding they release former employees from NDAs. It’s time to let these people speak out & share their experiences with assault and harassment. Join me & take action.”
Moore, who recently starred as Gloria Steinem in Amazon’s
The Glorias, and #MeToo activist and Who’s the Boss actress Alyssa Milano also tweeted out the same message.
Milano, in particular, has a long record of attacking the Washington Redskins for what she claimed is a “racist” name, even though she was
part of a company selling NFL gear and was even seen modeling Redskins team wear.
Schumer, Milano, and Moore linked up with the far-left group Time’s Up to push the effort to force the NFL team to cancel the aforementioned NDAs. “WHAT ARE YOU HIDING? More than 50 former employees – both women and men – have spoken out against the abuse and harassment they witnessed or endured at the Washington Football Team,” the group
says on its website.
The group says “the full extent of the toxic culture” inside the Redskins is not publicly known because employees and former employees are legally prohibited from speaking out.
Time’s Up officers and board members include Hollywood executives Katie McGrath and Shonda Rhimes, left-wing actress Ashley Judd, former Obama adviser Valerie Jarrett, among many more.
