Sonic Drive-In Apologizes for Incredibly Racist “Redskins” Sign

A roadside sign even more awful than the team’s on-field performance.

Sonic Drive-In went into severe apology mode when one of its restaurants in Belton, Missouri, put up a obnoxiously distasteful sign about yesterday’s game between Washington and the Kansas City Chiefs.

The sign read: “‘KC CHIEFS’ WILL SCALP THE REDSKINS FEED THEM WHISKEY SEND - 2 - RESERVATION,” which is about four different kinds of racist.

A Sonic executive told NBC News the sign was put up by an employee who is “known for creative use of his signs,” but this particular display was “in poor taste.” Yeah.

The sign was taken down a few hours after it was broadcast to the world on Twitter, and the signmaker is said to be “very apologetic.” Washingtonian reached out to the Redskins, who lost to the Chiefs 45-10, but they’re not touching this one.
