Last week, the Washington Post reported that The Daily Show had recorded a segment about the Washington Redskins controversy that included a tense debate between fans and Native American activists. One Washington fan even went so far as to say she felt “in danger” and like she was “going to be defamed.”
Jon Stewart aired that segment last night following a statement in which he steadfastly stood by the representation of the fans in the piece. The whole thing is equal parts hilarious, awkward, and sad. Check out the clip below.
