The Winnipeg Jets have spoken to their talented, young forward, Evander Kane, about his latest Twitter controversy, this one coming last week when he tweeted what many perceived as a homophobic slur.
Kane apologized for the tweet; however, Jets general manager Kevin Cheveldayoff and team co-owner Mark Chipman still took the time to have an in-person chat with the 22-year-old, per the Winnipeg Free Press.
“Our collective goal is to work with Evander, to offer him counsel on making better decisions on social media and Twitter,” Jets spokesman Scott Brown said.
