Redskins Make Statement Regarding Cheerleader Claims; Remove ‘Who’s Hotter’ Feature from Website

In a case that is sure to get more negative attention as for the franchise, today the Redskins got rid of a “who’s hotter” feature from their official website following allegations from team cheerleaders that they were forced to take part in a topless photo shoot in front of sponsors back in 2013.

For the photo shoot, at the adults-only Occidental Grand Papagayo resort on Culebra Bay, some of the cheerleaders said they were required to be topless, though the photographs used for the calendar would not show nudity. Others wore nothing but body paint. Given the resort’s secluded setting, such revealing poses would not have been a concern for the women — except that the Redskins had invited spectators.

A contingent of sponsors and FedExField suite holders — all men — were granted up-close access to the photo shoots.

The “Cheer 365” section of the site, which invited readers to rate the women’s attractiveness and bared the slug line “The hottest way to pass time all year long,” was deleted on Thursday.
