The Vegas Golden Knights Are Catching Hell On Twitter For A Tweet Before The Bruins Game

The Vegas Golden Knights are less than one month old, but have already felt the full wrath of the watchdog internet. It was going to happen sooner or later, it always does. No account is safe. One off-color tweet or poor attempt at humor, the pitchforks come out. Throw in a seemingly misogynistic tweet in a time when sexual harassment in the entertainment industry is the hot button issue of the time, you’re in for a bad time.

The Golden Knights found that out the hard way last night before their game against the Boston Bruins. The team’s Twitter account posted the Boston forward lines with female names rather than the actual lineup.


If those names sound familiar, they were ripped from the movie Ted, which the team thought would make it better after its mentions got flooded.


Yeah, it didn’t go well for them.

Live and learn.

The anti-drug people gave him a $50 savings bond for his brave contribution to crime-fighting, and upon the bond’s maturity 10 years later, he used it to buy his very first bag of marijuana.
