4/4/20| According to John Shannon, the FBI is now involved.
4/3/20 | From the Rangers:
“We held an online video chat with fans and New York Rangers prospect, K’Andre Miller, during which a vile individual hijacked the chat to post racial slurs, which we disabled as soon as possible. We were incredibly appalled by this behavior, which has no place online, on the ice, or anywhere, and we are investigating the matter.”
From the NHL:
“The National Hockey League is appalled that a video call arranged today by the New York Rangers to introduce their fans to one of the League’s incoming stars, K’Andre Miller, was hacked with racist, cowardly taunts. The person who committed this despicable act is in no way an NHL fan and is not welcome in the hockey community.
“No one deserves to be subjected to such ugly treatment and it will not be tolerated in our League. We join with the Rangers in condemning this disgusting behavior.”
What happened today was inexcusable and cowardly. Racism has no place in the hockey community or the world. @kandre_miller we are excited to have you as a part of the @NYRangers and I look forward to having you as a teammate.

My sincere apologies to @kandre_miller and his family. These disgusting, cowardly, racist attacks on K’Andre Miller embarrass the entire hockey community. K’Andre, the NHL community can’t wait to officially welcome you, we are so happy to have you.

K’Andre Miller has the support of myself and the entire Wisconsin hockey family. He has a bright future in the game of hockey. No one should be subjected to the inexcusable, racist behavior experienced today by K’Andre. pic.twitter.com/c2pk0FSupL

Yesterday, a gutless coward posted racial slurs directed towards our client, @kandre_miller. This action was disgusting and reprehensible, and something no one should have to endure. The Will Sports Group stands in full support of K’Andre Miller and his family.
