‘No Means No’: Here’s How Tony Wyllie, Redskins PR Official, Became Viral Star

Tony Wyllie, a PR official for the Washington Redskins, became a viral star shortly after the Redskins’ victory over the Dallas Cowboys Monday night.

During the post-game interviews, Wyllie was tasked with getting Redskins QB Colt McCoy off of the field in a timely fashion and escort him to wherever he needed to go next, according to the Washington Post.

After Lisa Salters completed her post-game interview with Colt McCoy and Redskins head coach Jay Gruden, Tony Wyllie seemed to swoop into the frame out of nowhere.

ESPN Deportes reporter John Sutcliffe tried to grab the 28-year old quarterback and start an interview of his own. Wyllie aggressively intervened, placing his hand on McCoy to guide him away from the field.

“No, no, no. We gotta go guys. We gotta go!”

There was clearly some resistance from Sutcliffe as Tony Wyllie escorted McCoy to his next destination, which is when the now-viral moment happened.

Wyllie turned around and yelled, “No means no!”

In addition to being covered in the press almost as much as the Redskins’ victory over the Cowboys, Tony Wyllie’s “No Means No” moment has been shared and retweeted on Twitter as a Vine video.

#NoMeansNo has even become a viral hashtag and trending topic on Facebook and Twitter. You may have even seen this Tony Wyllie moment mocked and even criticized on Twitter.
