“Deadspin” accused a nine-year-old Kansas City Chiefs fan of wearing blackface and a Native headdress, prompting a backlash across the nation, and even garnering the attention of U.S. lawmakers.

“Ready to cheer on the Dawgs! @Deadspin,” Rep. Mike Collins posted, with a photo of his face painted half red, half black in support of the Georgia bulldogs.

The boy’s family, who are Native American, defended the face paint as a show of support for their team. “Deadspin” and its reporter, Carron J. Phillips, has faced heavy criticism for his handling of the situation. (Trending: Bombshell Email Uncovered Between Joe Biden And Hunter)
