The Washington Redskins have benched Robert Griffin III and are ready to move on from him but that doesn’t mean the dysfunction is gone.
A few hours after Redskins coach Jay Gruden announced that Kirk Cousins will be the started quarterback for the 2015 season, RGIII’s Instagram account “liked” a photo on Instagram criticizing the head coach, the front office and owner Dan Snyder.
And thanks to social media and how everything is under a microscope, RGIII’s action was spotted and shared throughout social media. What made matters worse was the explanation Robert posted explaining why the “like” button was clicked on that post:
“I just want to set the record straight on this one. I did not “like” that IG post ridiculing our team. I have not been social media active consistently for awhile now and am ultra-focused on working to get back on the field and trying to help this team. One of our interns who helps with Instagram liked the post. As soon as I was made aware of it, it was immediately unliked. That is not how I feel and I appreciate your understanding. #HTTR”
