Liberal Media Meltsdown After NHL Player Refuses To Wear Pride Jersey

Philadelphia Flyers defenseman Ivan Provorov is being called a ‘homophobic’ and ‘bigot’ by the crazed liberal media after boycotting the team’s Pride night for the LGBTQ+ community. Provorov did not participate after finding out the organization wanted players to wear Pride themed jerseys and use sticks wrapped in rainbow Pride tape. The defenseman stated that his Russian Orthodox religion as the reason why he refused to take part.

“I respect everybody and I respect everybody’s choices,” he told reporters after the game. “My choice is to stay true to myself and my religion. That’s all I’m going to say.”

Flyers coach John Tortorella also gave his explanation on the situation after the game:

“I think the organization has sent out a release regarding the beliefs that we have,” he said, via Philly Hockey Now. “It was really a great night. With Provy, he is being true to himself and to his religion. This has to do with his beliefs and his religion. That is one thing I respect about Provy, he is always true to himself, so that’s where we’re at with that.”

“I just think it’s unfair. I know you are probably going to talk to Provy. I’m not going to spend a lot of time on it. I think it was a great night, and I’m not going to get too deep into the conversation.”

Needless to say, liberal media went into a complete meltdown after the Russian refused to fit into the mold of what they see as acceptable. Just a few examples can be seen below:

  1. People dont want God in conversations, but want to push their agenda off on everyone. He has the right to his beliefs. People condemning him for not participating are very selfish in their beliefs.

  2. Typical liberals. If you don’t agree and do as they wish, you are a racist and homophobe. It’s a pathetic method of attack that the media loves to sensationalize.

  3. In my opinion there should not be any pride night for any sport. I’m tired of all this LGB crap everywhere. I don’t care what you do in your own home but I don’t want to see it. I can’t even watch any TV show today without half the people being gay.

  4. Ivan Provorov stood by his beliefs. Good for him. Furthermore, it is none of your business. He plays the game of hockey. Enough said on this mundane B.S. grievance. Boo-Hoo!

  5. God gave us a free will…No one has a right to take that away and impose and demand we have to do what they say. Do what you want but don’t force your beliefs on someone else. Then we should all tell these people they have to go to church and follow our Godly beliefs or they are homophobics. Grow up and face life the way it really is.Wear Jesus shirts when we tell you or doesn’t that work for you ?????

  6. I’m a gay hockey fan and I have no problem whatsoever for Prov to choose not to wear the jersey. I’m actually surprised there were not more players doing the same. I, myself am not big on parading around with the gay pride 🏳️‍🌈 colors. I frankly have yet to understand how the gay community gets a whole month for celebration not just one day. In America, do not take away a person’s right to freedom of religion. Come on Americans!! Wake up
