Well, to be fair, it wasn't until late 2014 that the allegations against him really hit the public square in a big way, so it's a believable excuse provided you assume they genuinely knew nothing about it at the time the room was named. Given all the other details coming out though, I'm finding it difficult to make that assumption. There's also the fact that in all of the photos of the room, it was reportedly decorated much like you'd expect from any other generic hotel room. Blank white walls, plain carpet, plain curtains, etc, etc. Which effectively pulls the foundation right out from under them on that explanation.They're claiming it was called that because of his awful patterned sweaters if you can believe that?
To me, this photo was in really bad taste; if it was as they claimed, it lacks context (why aren't they all wearing ugly sweaters?).
