In a week that has been mixed for racial tensions nation wide…we find yet another awful blemish on the record of the racists. According to CBS Detroit, Boston Bruins fans blew up Twitter following the Bruins team losing in overtime 4-3 to the Montreal Canadiens.
P.K. Subban scored the winning goal in the fifth minute of the second overtime.
Fans acknowledged their disappointment and frustration with the loss by taking to their Twitter accounts and writing some horrendous, racist comments about Subban. In fact there were so many of these comments that the word Nigger was trending!
Check out some of the comments that were made below!

There were also Tweets in support of Subban or at least tweets that were in support of class and civility. Check some of those out below.

– I bet the Bruins fans calling P.K. Subban a n***** on Twitter have no idea his brother plays for their minor league team.

Bruins President Cam Neely issued a statement in which he said,
“The racist, classless views expressed by an ignorant group of individuals following Thursday’s game via digital media are in no way a reflection of anyone associated with the Bruins organization.”
We know for a fact that Boston is better than this…and we sure hope they encourage their cyber thug fans to either keep it classy or keep it pushin!
