    NFL owner Dan Snyder came under further fire Wednesday as new allegations of sexism and harassment in the Washington Football Team’s workplace emerged from The Washington Post. The new report details additional inappropriate behavior within the organization, including a video featuring lewd outtakes from a 2008 cheerleader photoshoot.

    Snyder claimed he was unaware of the allegations until the story, but said, “I take full responsibility for the culture of our organization.”

    The Post’s story comes a month after it published an article outlining harassment allegations against former employees. After the article, the organization brought in an outside investigator to look into the allegations.

    These new allegations come after Washington has looked to rehabilitate its image. The team recently retired its former racist name and made several notable hires, including Jason Wright, the first Black NFL team president.
