(AllHipHop News) Watts-based rapper glasses Malone has issued a challenge to the racist fans to the racist Boston Bruins fans who tweeted slurs against Washington Capitals player Joel Ward.
Joel Ward became the first black player in NHL history to win a series for his team with the overtime goal.
But the celebration turned sour, after some fans of the Boston Bruins directed a series of racist tweets at Joel Ward after his game 7 goal in overtime eliminated the team from the Stanley Cup playoffs.
Glasses Malone, who has worked with artists like Snoop Dogg, Lil Wayne, T-Pain and The Cataracs, would like to meet the racist tweeters “face-to-face” for a “chat.”
“It was simple for me. I was checking out a sports blog being the boxing fanatic I am and read a report of a couple guys tweeting some racist things,” Glasses Malone told AllHipHop.com. “I decided to extend an invitation with a few of them. Just a face-to-face conversation for clarification. That’s it. Stand for something or fall for anything.”
Joel Ward was diplomatic about the racist comments, which have been making more headlines than his game-winning OT goal.
“I know what I signed up for. I’m a black guy playing a predominantly white sport,” Ward told reporters. “It’s just going to come with the territory. I’d feel naive or foolish to think that it doesn’t exist. It’s a battle I think will always be there.”
Even the Bruins distanced themselves from the racist tweets after the story hit the media.
“The Bruins are very disappointed by the racist comments that were made following the game last night. These classless, ignorant views are in no way a reflection of anyone associated with the Bruins organization.”
The Capitals will face the New York Rangers in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference semifinals today (April 28) at 3:00PM.
