By now, you’ve probably heard of Joel Ward. Joel Ward plays ice hockey for the Washington Capitals. Joel Ward also scored the game winning goal for the Capitals in their hard-fought, seven game series against the Boston Bruins.
Shortly afterwards, Ward’s Twitter page was filled with racially negative comments. To be accurate, 67,000 racially negative tweets.
Even though the so-called “fans” got their hate out, Ward’s goal still counts, Washington still won and Boston was still eliminated from the 2012 Stanley Cup playoffs.
The more interesting point follows.
There have been Boston fans profusely apologizing for the actions of some fans who are probably not fans of the Bruins, or the sport. Not only that, some of Ward’s teammates, like Jeff Halpern took to Twitter to support their teammate.
Now, loser fans that have to get your hate out behind the shield of Internet anonymity, suck it. And you know what “it” is.
