After Redskins Coach Jay Gruden announced Monday that “it’s Kirk’s team” in the latest chapter of Robert Griffin III’s fall from grace, a disgruntled Redskins fan blasted owner Daniel Snyder and the team’s front office in an Instagram post defending Griffin.

Griffin (@rgiii) was tagged in the post, which featured the hashtag #ImpeachDanSnyder. Whoever was managing Griffin’s Instagram account “liked” the post on Monday night, as noted by countless sites. The “like” was later retracted.

@xtramambosauce As a Skins Fan I’m disappointed in the way my team used this mans talent and potential to do nothing but raise hopes and make a profit. I don’t regret the skins grabbing RG, I do regret having a sorry ass team owner and sorry ass front office who couldn’t put a winning coaching staff together who could actually compete for a super bowl. Griffin does not deserve the blame or bad rap, the man has gone above and beyond since day one to the point of injury, while at the same time being a role model of a person. The Redskins let him fall and did not help him get up. No matter if he’s a starter, back up, or played for another team I will always respect and be a fan of RG3. #HTTR #Loyalty #ImpeachDanSnyder #Redskins #redskinsnation #DC #NFL @rgiii @espn @nfl

[You play the GM. Where does RGIII fit best in the NFL?]

A few hours later, Griffin attempted to “set the record straight” with his own Instagram post, explaining that an intern who helps manage his Instagram account was responsible for liking the post.

@rgiii I just wanted to set the record straight on this one. I did not “like” that IG post ridiculing our team. I have not been social media active consistently for awhile now and am ultra-focused on working to get back on the field and trying to help this team. One of our interns who helps with Instagram liked the post. As soon as I was made aware of it, it was immediately unliked. That is not how I feel and I appreciate your understanding.

As anyone who has used the Instagram app knows, it’s easy to accidentally “like” a post when scrolling through a stream of photos. That excuse would probably be just as believable as blaming an intern, but some fans will be happy to know that Griffin has apparently delegated his social media posting duties since the days of him going back and forth with a critic in the comments.
