Former Washington Football Team (WFT) cheerleaders and employees will stage a protest outside the team’s stadium on Monday to demand the release of a report on the NFL’s investigation into team misconduct in the workplace.
The “#ReleaseTheReport” protest will take place before the team’s “Monday Night Football” game against the Seattle Seahawks.
“Once again we are coming together to demand the transparency and accountability that we, those who suffered sexual harassment at the WFT and the public, reasonably expect from a full investigation that included more than 120 people,” said Melanie Coburn, a former employee of the Washington football team. and Megan Imbert wrote in a joint statement.

Coburn and Imbert, along with several former employees, fans, supporters and family members, will gather in the parking lot before the game, according to the Justice League website.
“This is bigger than the WFT and the NFL, and it’s time to hold the most prominent workplace in the country to account. That will be the only way to make any real progress,” Coburn told the sports outlet. “We look forward to speaking with fans on Monday night at FedExField! Take care of us in the Redzone lot from 5 p.m. m. to the start!”
Washington’s football team has been the center of league controversy this season.
Former Las Vegas Raiders head coach Jon Gruden resigned from his post last month after emails from the NFL’s initial investigation into the Washington football team were leaked, exposing racist, homophobic language and misogynistic.
The chain of leaked emails, stretching from 2011 to 2018, involved then-team president Bruce Allen and Gruden, who was employed by ESPN as the lead announcer for “Monday Night Football.”
Gruden, who reached a settlement with his former team over his departure, recently sued the NFL over the leaks.
House Oversight and Reform Committee Chairwoman Carolyn Maloney (D-N.Y) and member Raja Krishnamoorthi (D-Ill.) recently called on the NFL to release its full investigative report into the misconduct of the equipment in the workplace.
The league fined the Washington football team $10 million in July following its investigation, and also required team executives to undergo training on issues such as bullying and unconscious bias.
Rapper Wale is set to perform his 2020 hit song “Sue Me” during the team’s “Inspire Change” halftime show, which garnered heavy airplay during social unrest against police brutality and systemic racism.
In an interview with CBS affiliate WUSA earlier this month, Coburn and Imbert expressed their displeasure with the song’s choice for the halftime show.
“I was a little surprised by the name of the song,” Coburn told host Darren Haynes. “Seeing a song called ‘Sue Me’ announced as the halftime performance for the inspirational game changer was a bit tone deaf in my opinion.”
“Watching a song called ‘Sue Me’ as the halftime show was kind of deaf”
