The New York Rangers are investigating how prospect K’Andre Miller’s video chat with fans was “hijacked” by racial slurs directed toward the African American player.
Miller, 20, took part in a video Q&A on Zoom that was limited to 500 participants on Friday afternoon.
With about 150 fans streaming the chat, the comments section for questions was overrun with the N-word being published over and over again, under different user names, before the comments were turned off.
Videos of the incident circulated on social media, and both the Rangers and the National Hockey League put out statements condemning the act.
