Guardian of the New Jersey Devil PK Subban didn’t have a great time despite his team’s victory over Hurricane Carolina on Saturday night. This comes as the Canadian ice hockey player has bigger things to worry about – his family.
Before that, in the game between the Stingrays and the Jacksonville Icemen on Saturday night, the two teams clashed near the corner of the ice rink. Like Jordan and Jacob Panetta (opposition defender) skating towards their bench, Subban, who is Black, alleged that Panetta performed “Monkey Gestures” towards him.
Subban couldn’t restrain himself from reacting to the controversial racial abuse case against his brother, Jordan Subbanan ECHL South Carolina stingray guard.
“They don’t call the east coast league the jungle because my brother and the other black players are monkeys! Hey @jacobpanetta, you shouldn’t be quick to delete your Twitter or Instagram account, you might end up playing again… that’s what history says but everything,” PK Subban wrote on Twitter.
“It’s horrible” – Subban’s reaction after the demon battle
32-year-old man was caught interacting with USA Today to shed light on this unfortunate thing that happened to one of his family members. He also felt “embarrassed” on behalf of ice hockey, saying “our game was better than this”.
“Completely disappointing. Frustrating, “ PK Subban said after the Devils game on Sunday night. “There is no place for it in our game. I’m embarrass. I’m embarrassed because our game was better than this.”
“We don’t expect anyone to feel sorry and we don’t really expect anyone to understand that it’s not Black,” he added. “If you’re not Black, you won’t understand, and that’s okay with us. You can argue that’s racism, appeasementism, whatever you want. For us, this is life. This is life for us, and that’s sad.
“This is life for people like me who have been through the hockey game and it is part of history, whether we like it or not. We are trying to change that. I’m an advocate of trying and changing that, but in order to do that, we have to bring everyone together and hopefully this is one more step towards making it happen.”
