"The Trademark Trial and Appeal Board agreed with our clients that the team's name and trademarks disparage Native Americans. The Board ruled that the Trademark Office should never have registered these trademarks in the first place," Jesse Witten, the plaintiffs' lead attorney, said in a press release. "We presented a wide variety of evidence – including dictionary definitions and other reference works, newspaper clippings, movie clips, scholarly articles, expert linguist testimony, and evidence of the historic opposition by Native American groups – to demonstrate that the word 'redskin' is an ethnic slur."
The team will appeal the case, according to a statement from its attorney, and it will be able to keep its trademark protection during appeal. Further, losing the trademark would not force the team to change its name.

There’s a new star of the 2016 presidential election, and she only stands 6 inches tall.

Instagram users @hellohunter and @lil_brunch  are the geniuses behind the Instagram account lil.hillary, a parody feed that features a Hillary Clinton action figure on the campaign trail.

“[We] noticed Hillary doesn’t have an Instagram account for her campaign and decided it was our duty to help her out,” hellohunterr wrote on Instagram.

Just like the actual candidate, Lil’ Hillary is determined to be elected President of the United States. But she keeps getting caught in ~crazy~ situations.

Like taking public transportation…

 

Stopping at her favorite Chipotle…

 

Dealing with the pesky press…

 

Taunting the Republican competition…


And unwinding after a long day with an adult beverage.

 

The good news is, there are enough tiny Hillarys to go around! You can own your very own miniature Clinton for $14.99.

But after taking a scroll through this Instagram feed, one thing is for certain: there can only be one Lil’ Hillary.
