Racists Tweets Follow Bruins’ Loss on Goal By Black Player

Montreal Canadiens v Boston Bruins - Game One

Boston has long had a reputation for racial intolerance, and it reared its head again Thursday night following the  4-3 overtime loss by its hockey team, the Bruins, to the Montreal Canadiens.

Black Montreal player P.K. Subban scored the winning goal and Boston fans blew up Twitter Thursday night and went “Donald Sterling.”

Here is a sample of the Tweets.

– That stupid n***** doesn’t belong in hockey #whitesonly

– F*** YOU N***** SUBBAN YOU BELONG IN A F****** HOLE NOT AN ICE RINK

– PK Subban = F****** N*****

– F*** PK Subban. F****** n*****. Wish he got sold

– subban is the definition of a n*****

– Someone needs to smack PK subban across his big n***** lips. #scumbag

– SUBBAN IS A F****** PORCH M*****

– F*** that stupid m***** #subban

– F*** you subban you f****** lucky ass n*****!

– Once again, Subban stop being a n*****

– N***** was trending in Boston because P.K. Subban scored… It’s a rare moment in my life to be ashamed to be a Bruins fan.

– I bet the Bruins fans calling P.K. Subban a n***** on Twitter have no idea his brother plays for their minor league team.

– the hashtag #N***** is trending in Boston after Subban’s goal. Do they tweet this after a David Ortiz HR? f*** off Boston, be better.

– N***** trending in Boston- #NHL another sport with issues

Bruins president Cam Neely issued this statement concerning the racist tweets Friday afternoon: “The racist, classless views expressed by an ignorant group of individuals following Thursday’s game via digital media are in no way a reflection of anyone associated with the Bruins organization.”
