D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser has been one of the many women who have been stepping up in the light of the civil unrest sweeping the nation.
Bowser has been successfully trolling the occupant in the White House, Donald Trump with powerful messages like a gigantic Black Lives Matter mural and renaming a street to Black Lives Matter Plaza has her eyes set on another mission. The D.C. Mayor is joining congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez in demanding the Washington RNFL team change its name.
Speaking with The Team 980 & 95.9 FM, Bowser stated, “it’s past time” the team made a move to rebrand. She also said she believes the team’s name is also an “obstacle” in getting a new stadium.
“I think it’s past time for the team to deal with what offends so many people, and this is a great franchise with a great history that’s beloved in Washington. And it deserves a name that reflects the affection that we’ve built for the team.”
