Winnipeg Jets Star Evander Kane Calls Chris Bosh a ‘Fairy” On Twitter

Hockey players have always looked down on basketball players and for good reason. In hockey, a flop still means you’re taking a stick to the face, but basketball seems to be filled with innocent guys always getting screwed by the referees. Evander Kane is obviously of this notion and he took to Twitter to tell the world how he really feels about Miami Heat forward Chris Bosh.

Kane called Bosh a “fairy” for the way he drove to the basket against the Spurs and while he was simply making a comment on Bosh’s play, he chose a very poor wording in doing so. The backlash on Twitter was almost instantaneous against Kane, who still tried to brush it off as something people were getting too wound up about.

Kane likely didn’t mean anything as malicious as people were claiming, but in this day and age it’s a well known fact that you need to check yourself before you wreck yourself on Twitter. Look no further than the vomit-inducing drivel that was spewed on Twitter and social media because a young Mexican-American boy sang the national anthem.

The Jets star apologized and said he had learned from his little incident and it proves that even things that fly under the radar can still cause a stir with certain people. Also, it’s likely the only time the Winnipeg Jets and Miami Heat will ever be uttered in the same sentence or appear anywhere near each other for the rest of time.
