guy deletes tweet and pretends it never happens
BRAD RETWEETS A SCREENSHOT OF THE HOMOPHOBIC TWEET SAYING “YOU’RE NOT GETTING OFF THAT EASY”
like imagine if al the NHL Players gave this much of a shit. Like Brad did not need to do that FOR ANY REASON it’s probably a PR nightmare and he doubled down on it. He called out a fan and i’m sure the NHL hates that shit and Brad is still like DOUBLE CALL OUT. and for once someone is risking shit to protect us. This is how you ally. you do it even when it could detriment you and you do it with conviction.
im in tears?? he’s acknowledging fans who are thanking him for being an ally and he’s not just doing this to get attention or look cool or anything (not that i ever thought he was) but he genuinely cares about the people that are affected by slurs and he’s letting them know that he has their backs and im just so emotional i love him so much!!!!! when will your fave ever??
