There will always be a few… and I’d expect that, especially when it comes to black hockey players, you’ll often be able to find at least some racist Tweets from fans of the predominately white sport. But, Penguins fans on Twitter took it to another level yesterday.
Over a dozen Tweets, all from different idiots, called Simmonds either a “nigger” or some variation of a primate.
You can see them all after the jump. Feel free to respond, too.
