Washington's ex-Cheerleader Director Says Dan Snyder Told Him, "Keep Them Skinny with Big Tits or I'll F-ing Kill You'

It's been about about four months since the first reports that Dan Snyder's Washington Football team was a cesspool of workplace harassment from rich old creeps like Snyder treating the female employees, particularly the cheerleaders, like they were working a window in Amsterdam's Red Light district. And it's been three months or so since the NFL announced it will not do the thing it loves to do more than any other thing during the Holy Goodell Empire, and that is investigate one of their teams. Not in this case. Instead, the league is doing to rely on the personal integrity of Snyder and the sleazy lawyers he hires to whitewash this whole thing. 

Since then, it's pretty much crickets. Snyder no comments, the commissioner's office defers to the Washington's investigation, and the Washington Hired Goons Team continues to produce nothing. But the Washington Post and others are not sitting this one out. 

In August, The Post reported that the team had produced lewd videos out of outtakes from the cheerleaders’ 2008 and 2010 swimsuit calendar shoots that include partial nudity.  ...

Then-senior vice president Larry Michael told broadcasting staffers to produce the videos, according to two ex-employees, one of whom said the footage was to be assembled for team owner Daniel Snyder. Snyder and Michael have denied any knowledge of the videos, copies of which were obtained by The Post. 

The videos include clips during which some of the cheerleaders’ nipples are exposed as they shift positions or adjust props shielding their breasts. Two of the women’s pubic areas are obscured only partly by body paint. The videos are set to the same three classic rock hits, including one each by The Rolling Stones and U2, two bands Snyder said were his favorites in a 2011 interview. ...

Like the cheerleaders he led, Donald Wells, who served as director from 1997 to 2009, is taking a hard look back at his experience with the team. He regrets that he could not have done more to protect the women. He also recalled a remark by Snyder that Wells said reveals his disrespect for the cheerleaders, their hard work and the value they brought to the team. 

“You better keep them skinny with big tits or I’ll f------ kill you,” Wells said Snyder told him at a 2004 charity event where the squad performed.

Snyder, who has been the team’s majority owner since 1999, declined an interview request for this story and did not respond to questions sent to his attorney and public relations firm about the comment Wells said he made.

Notwithstanding that it's the height - maybe "depths" is a better word - of pervy old guyness to order your staff to splice together nip slip compilations of your other employees and set it to your favorite music in order to enhance the circle jerk experience at your next Lemon Party. (Allegedly.) Think about that, in a world with unlimited free access to actual porn. Two decades after you couldn't watch TV after 11 p.m. without being bombarded with ads for "Girls Gone Wild," getting off on involuntary nudity of women who were trying not to show anything while doing the job they were hired to do is just exponentially skeevy. There are literally millions of available videos of adult female wanting you to see them naked. If this is true, then getting off on an accidental nipple is sick. To misuse a line from "West Side Story," it's being depraved on account of you're deprived. 

But this business of "keep them skinny with big tits," if proven, could be Snyder's undoing. There's no way his target audience will stand for this. Not in 2020. Sure, there was a time when that was the general consensus. The popular ideal of the female form. But football fans don't want just that any more. That's old white man thinking. A generation out of date. 

As Jim Brockmire put it so brilliantly, the American male's fixation on "skinny with big tits" produced decades of big bags filled with chemical goo sewn onto women's chests. And thanks to the internet, new voices were heard from. Voices who democratized the concept of beauty. Well, let me just let him explain. Because it's one of the great example of oration in our times. 

So good luck getting support from the millions of Washington Football Ticket Buyers and Washington Football Home Viewers who want to see other body types leading those cheers on the Washington Football Sidelines when they find out you discriminated based on your own narrow world view. Again, if these reports are accurate, Dan Snyder is not just a workplace sexual harasser, he refuses to give his public the curvy women they want and deserve. Fucking creep.
