Detroit Red Wings destroy a puck bunny's goal in life


The Detroit Red Wings have always had some humor to their Twitter feed. However the team hit an all time high after responding to puck bunny’s tweet stating that her future goal in life is to marry a Wings player.

 

It looks as if Kaylee G has deleted her account, most likely due to the extreme backlash of respondents to the tweet the Wings sent out. This is also a great lesson that even though the account was private, her tweet is now national news.

I agree with Ashley Chase, the team should be proud to have tweeted this statement. But not just in terms of the constant annoyance that is a puck bunny, but also because people such as this really do need to strive for greater things in life.

After some bad names were thrown around, the Red Wings feed went on to defend her and were telling others that name calling is unnecessary.

 

The incident evolved into a lesson to young fans that there is more to life than looks. Pretty interesting, as you have to wonder if the jab began with that concept in mind or if it evolved into that after the backlash. Either way, poor Kaylee will need to come up with a new Twitter username if ever wanting to tweet again.

    Even though I’m a Blues fan who strongly LOATHES the Red Wings, kudos to Detroit’s organization for telling it like it is towards a Twitter user whose idea was to be a “puck bunny” for life and for reminding that a women has more value than just her appearance.

    Truly “amusing” that immediately following an article about how a woman’s value is more than just her looks, the ads at the bottom of the page show such gems as “The Hottest Actresses That Bared It All On Camera,” “16 Hottest Disney Good Girls Gone Naughty,” and (strangely) “Kobe Bryant Answers Three Ridiculous Questions” with a pic of a bikini-clad blonde.

    Perhaps, if Fansided is going to celebrate the Redwings standing up for less objectification of women, they could do it themselves.
