When I saw the opening segment for Scotiabank Hockey Tonight on NHL Network this evening I was shocked to see this image on my television set as a startled Ron McLean told viewers the Montreal Canadiens were hosting the Florida Panthers at the Bell Centre.
It’s not shocking that a white Habs fan holding an overpriced cup of beer “honored” defenseman P.K. Subban, who is black. It’s that a couple of Habs fans were given sh*t on both sides of the border for doing it last season, and yet someone in Montreal rolled out of the rack this morning and still thought it was a brilliant idea to don black face for Halloween.
Stay classy, Habs fans.
