Chicago Blackhawks Center Andrew Shaw may have played his final game with the team. As you can see from the picture deliberately chosen above, Shaw didn’t really have a reputation for being homophobic; until now. That’s him with Blackhawks face of the franchise Patrick Kane, re-enacting the iconic scene from the 1997 blockbuster “Titanic.”
The photo was taken days after the Blackhawks won the 2013 Stanley Cup, and it shows Shaw warmly embracing another man. Although that situation and that photo are light-hearted and fun, today’s atmosphere is serious and a little bit disturbing.
Today, due to his actions in the Stanley Cup playoffs, social media has branded him a homophobic bigot.Follow paulmbanks
