The Sexual Assault scandal that’s rocking the NHL world continues.
The Chicago Blackhawks made a homophobic joke on the team locker room whiteboard all the way back in 2010. A photo of the joke shows it was on the whiteboard only a few weeks after then-player Kyle Beach accused the team’s video coach of sexual assault.
A report this week found that the Blackhawks failed to investigate the player’s allegations.

The photo in question is from the Stanley Cup celebrations in 2010.

#Blackhawks Players still in the @nhl: We had no knowledge of this and it was sad and unfortunate and I wish we did more. Oh yea and we wrote “Chris Pronger is gay” on the whiteboard at the same time this was getting covered up. pic.twitter.com/kcI1MwN9Ct

Chicago law firm Jenner & Block published an independent investigation earlier this week saying top Blackhawks executives failed to properly investigate Beach’s claims.
This kind of Locker Room behavior probably happens more than you think. There’s really no room for it in today’s society.
The Locker Room doesn’t give you a license to be homophobic or racist…
