Something absolutely despicable happened a few hours ago. Let’s review:
Today, the Rangers hosted a Zoom Q&A with prospect K’Andre Miller. As K’Andre is answering questions, someone spammed the chat with racial slurs. When I say spammed I mean, spammed.
(Warning: this video has disturbing language)
This is absolutely disgusting. It took a while for the Rangers to release a response but here is what they said:
Then the league released this statement:
I hope the NHL and Zoom do everything in their power to track down the little pissant(s) who did this. Whoever is responsible deserves the public shaming of being a racist piece of shit.
I am so appalled at this that it’s hard to find the words. How fucked up do you have to be to think this is remotely okay?
It’s not funny, it’s not a joke, and if you think it is, you’re a racist sack of shit, get the fuck out of here. It is literal harassment and abuse. When these individual/individuals are caught, they should be charged with harassment and banned from further NHL events.
K’Andre is still a young kid, just 20-years-old, and he does not deserve to be treated like that, no one does. It’s absolutely disgusting. The NHL or FBI, who has been warned about these “zoombombing”, better catch these bastards.
I hope K’Andre is doing okay right now. I can’t imagine what toll this would take on someone, I hope that he is in a safe place and feeling okay. He’s a talented young defenseman who is going to thrive in this league. He deserves so much better than being treated like this.
These racists scumbags will not win.
