According to the former cheerleading director for the then-Washington Redskins, owner Daniel Snyder once allegedly told him in 2004 that if he didn’t keep the cheerleaders “skinny with big t***,” then he would “f*****g kill’ him.”
That claim from former cheerleading director Donald Wells was made to attorney Lisa Banks, who along with fellow attorney Debra Katz is representing 12 former cheerleaders who are suing the owner and the team for salacious videos made of the cheerleaders showing their nipples and private parts. Attorney Gloria Allred said she represents 20 more ex-cheerleaders.
Wells, who led the cheerleading squad from 1997 to 2009, said, “I would never have told anyone about that if it weren’t for the revelation that the videos were created of my cheerleaders without their knowledge. I was embarrassed and scared if I said anything I might be fired,” The Washington Post reported.
The lewd videos in question were produced from outtakes of the cheerleaders’ 2008 and 2010
