So Let Me Get This Straight....

...an NHL player, over in London for the final few exhibition games of the season, has a banana peel thrown at him during a game last week. He is black, of course. The incident is condemned both here in the States, and over in the UK. Indeed, rewards are offered on Twitter. Much sympathy is proffered to the player, and he's riding a wave of goodwill.
So how does this...player...respond in the very next game?
He calls renowned NHL gay rights activist Sean Avery (who, by the way, is about as straight as they come) a homophobic slur!
Way to go, asshat!
