Montreal’s P.K. Subban was on the receiving end of a barrage of racist tweets after scoring the winning goal in game one against the Bruins, but don’t expect Subban to fire back at these idiotic Twitter tough guys.
Subban on Saturday made what he says will be his only statement about the matter.
“First things first: the Boston Bruins is an Original Six franchise. They’ve been around for a very long time. They’re respected. It is completely unfair for anybody to point the finger at the organization or the fan base,” Subban said per The Boston Globe. “They’ve got passionate fans here. Since I’ve been in the league, it’s been awesome. I’ve come to Boston many times. My family has come here and it’s been great.”
“What people may say on Twitter and social media is not a reflection by any means of the league or the Boston Bruins. So, whoever that is, they’ll get dealt with, but it’s completely separate from this league or the Boston Bruins organization.”
You know Subban would like to find all of the racist nitwits hammering him on Twitter and ram a hockey stick up each of their butts.
But firing back at these losers would only embolden them, so Subban is taking the high road.
Once again, people on Twitter show just how low human beings are capable of sinking. Come on Twitter peeps. Don’t drag North American sports fandom down to European soccer fan levels. That’s not how we need to roll, on social media or anywhere else.
Class it up, Twitter bozos.
