(Newser) – Dan Snyder—having possibly forgotten that his team is called the "Washington Redskins"—is feeling offended. Snyder is suing the Washington City Paper for $2 million for an unflattering story, which was accompanied by a picture of Snyder with added goatee, mustache, and devil horns, Gawker reports.

The paper depicted Snyder "in a blatantly anti-Semitic way," his lawyers write in a letter to the City Paper, warning that "litigation would presumably quickly outstrip the asset value" of the paper. "We at City Paper take accusations of anti-Semitism seriously," the paper responded, "in part because many of us are Jewish, including staffers who edited the story and designed the cover."
