Montreal Canadiens v Boston Bruins - Game One

Donald Sterling isn’t the only racist in the headlines this week. Some Bruin fans showed their true colors after their team lost in double over-time to the Detroit Red Wings.

The Bruins and Red Wings are in a heated Stanley Cup Playoff series. Last night, their game was tied 3-3 in regulation. It took two over-times before the game would be decided and it was decided on a shot made by Red Wings P.K. Subban. Subban happens to be African-American, one of the few in the National Hockey League.

Bruins fans took to twitter to post their reactions to the loss. Some of the tweets were so explicit and peppered with racist epitaphs that CBS Detroit couldn’t post them all.

A few of the tweets read like this

– That stupid n***** doesn’t belong in hockey #whitesonly


– PK Subban = F****** N*****

– F*** PK Subban. F****** n*****. Wish he got sold

– subban is the definition of a n*****

– Someone needs to smack PK subban across his big n***** lips. #scumbag

– SUBBAN IS A F****** PORCH M*****

– F*** that stupid m***** #subban

– F*** you subban you f****** lucky ass n*****!

– Once again, Subban stop being a n*****

– N***** was trending in Boston because P.K. Subban scored… It’s a rare moment in my life to be ashamed to be a Bruins fan.

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

– the hashtag #N***** is trending in Boston after Subban’s goal. Do they tweet this after a David Ortiz HR? f*** off Boston, be better.

– N***** trending in Boston- #NHL another sport with issues

Bruins President Cam Neely issued a statement concerning the racist tweets Friday afternoon.

“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,” Neely said
