WTF: Racist Philadelphia Flyers Fan
The NHL is going through an image problem right now and it has to deal with its fans being racist. Especially after last week the NHL had the issue of Twitter being set ablaze with racist comments after Joel Ward’s Game 7 goal in overtime for the Washington Capitals ousted the Boston Bruins from the Stanley Cup playoffs.
And earlier this season there was the case of another of the NHL’s few black players, Philadelphia Flyers Wayne Simmonds, being taunted by a Canadian fan who threw a banana peel at him during a shootout.
Now comes this Philadelphia fan’s altered version of Simmonds number 17 jersey.
