Patrick Kane’s reputation has gone down the shitter real fast.
In November of 2015, prosecutors declined to charge Kane following a 21-year-old woman’s accusation that he raped her in his New York state home. Just two months after, an anonymous woman detailed a graphic incident claiming the 27-year-old assaulted her in a bathroom in 2014, saying Kane is a “sexual predator.”
Since the NHL investigation of Kane is still ongoing, Kane was able to participate in the NHL All-Star Skills Challenge over the weekend., where a chorus of boos rained down on him every time his name was mentioned.
No one got more of a kick out of it than former teammate and current member of the AHL’s St. John’s IceCaps, John Scott.
Scott told reporters after the event:
“We talked about it before. He said, ‘watch this, I’m going to get booed.’ We had a pretty good time with it and I thought it was pretty funny that the fans booed him.”
Kane chimed in as well:
“Every time, throughout the night, if we were doing interviews or getting introduced, it was always back-to-back so you either hear a lot of boos and then a lot of cheers or a lot of cheers and then a lot of boos. It was pretty funny.”
Funny, Kane? For us. For you, it’s catastrophic.
