The Washington Commanders had yet another controversy on their hands thanks to defensive coordinator Jack Del Rio. After tweeting out a take comparing the Jan. 6 insurrection at the United States Capitol to the George Floyd protests, Del Rio doubled down on it, calling the attack in Washington D.C. a “dust-up.”
Days after posting a statement of apology for the “dust-up” comment and being fined $100,000 by the team, Del Rio’s Twitter account is now non-existent as of June 11.
You can now add this to the list of other debacles the Commanders have dealt with since Feb. 2 this year — when they changed their team name to put their tumultuous past behind them.
