News of Don Cherry's firing has sparked outrage almost everywhere. But it's not all one-sided. In fact, the hashtag #BoycottSportsnet started trending on Twitter after the 85-year-old was dismissed. People are even going as far as to cancel their subscriptions with Sportsnet or even the outlet's parent company, Rogers.\nOn November 11, news broke that Hockey Night in Canada host Cherry had been relieved of his duties following comments he made about Remembrance Day and immigrants during his last broadcast two days previously.\nThe comments enraged many, with many apparently believing there were racial undertones to what was said.\nIn fact, the backlash was so strong that the number of complaints received by the Canadian Broadcast Standards Council actually led to the CBSC site having to stop accepting submissions.\nThere are, however, Canadians who are standing by Cherry in the face of his offensive rhetoric.\nAfter Sportsnet PR tweeted to announce they were severing ties with Cherry, plenty of people on Twitter responded unfavourably.\nIn fact, a slew of Cherry supporters threatened to cancel their subscription to the sports service as a result of the decision. Some even went as far as to illustrate their intentions to cancel their subscriptions through photo form, though unconfirmed reports suggest this may have been for the Twitter "clout".\nSee ya #sportsnets #BoycottSportsnet #DonCherry #VeteransDay pic.twitter.com/QlPBPXYMus— Brent Canning (@OilSands_Brent) November 11, 2019\nWhat a disgrace. #BoycottSportsNet— Randy Lahey (@randylahey56) November 11, 2019\n#BoycottSportsnet #BoycottRogers til Don Cherry gets his job back. Nothing he said was wrong.— jg0055 (@jg0055) November 11, 2019\nI've unfollowed and blocked #Sportsnet from my social media accounts. I will watch @BlueJays games elsewhere. Let's #BoycottSportsnet. #DonCherryIsRight— Amanda C (@trubble1127) November 11, 2019\nAbsolutely ridiculous🙄 sportsnet gets rid of Kypreos, MacLean and now Cherry in the last year alone. I guaranty sportsnet won’t be on in my house! #BoycottSportsnet #IStandWithDonCherry https://t.co/brLbELnkVn— lukas clarke (@clarke_lukas) November 11, 2019\nHey @Sportsnet instead of firing a Canadian legend for having a difference of opinion and expressing his free speech why don't you fire the tool who didn't show the first shot in the Leafs/Flyers game. You have 1 job and it isn't pandering to extremists #BoycottSportsnet— Morgan (@Morgan63816941) November 11, 2019\nThis is unfortunate news. Don Cherry said controversial stuff but it wasn’t from a place of racism. If anything it was from a place of nationalism. Trump has combined the two in the mind of a lot of people but they aren’t synonymous. #BoycottSportsnet https://t.co/l2B7fj8BSM— Clayton Sterling (@Claytoncyre) November 11, 2019\nUnbelievable.The woke Twitter mob re-elects a racist multiple time blackface PM yet is offended by a Truthful Canadian Patriot who always honours out VeteransWhat a $hithole this nation has turned into. #DonCherryIsRight #BoycottSportsNet #HNIC https://t.co/UFMO0JrtoZ— Schtev🇨🇦 (@schtev69) November 11, 2019\nImagine firing a man who was pleading for people to remember our vets and their sacrifice. This is a disgrace. I will never watch another Sportsnet broadcast again! #BoycottSportsnet #ImWithCherry— JWilliams760 🇨🇦🇬🇧 (@JustinW15441316) November 11, 2019\nSome didn't stop at Sportsnet, though. Oh no.\nSome people are so inexplicably raging mad that they even went ahead and cancelled their entire Rogers plans. Rogers, of course, is the parent company of Sportsnet.\n@Sportsnet cancelled @Rogers cell phone and visa cancelled . Fuck these these hypocrites that let a RACIST pm run around like a GOOF @JustinTrudeau 🖕🏻🖕🏻🖕🏻 #BoycottSportsnet #boycottrogers— wewantthesmoke (@wewantthesmoke1) November 11, 2019\nI just cancelled my Rogers cable. No more Sportsnet for this guy. A big f—k you to political correctness. Advertisers beware, no one is seeing your commercials! #SUPPORTDONCHERRY #boycottsportsnet #FightingBack— Noodles (@devilsweapon) November 11, 2019\nYou Fired ?Don Cherry on Remembrance DayI'm firing Sportsnet right- now, CBC and all their programing right now through Bell Television Satellite Tomorrow morning I am cancelling my Rogers Phone my Rogers Internet Service tooThank you Don for saying what we all Believe— Groot Speaks in Ottawa- "Guardian of the Galaxy" (@sidney_chest) November 11, 2019\nI will never be using any services from @Rogers after the firing of Don Cherry. In this country people have the right to express themselves freely. Clearly, your company does not understand what our veterans fought for.#FreeSpeech #DonCherryIsRight #BoycottRogers— Rawko (@DjRawko) November 11, 2019\nIt remains to be seen whether they'll also be boycotting other things around Toronto which carry the name of the company. The Toronto Blue Jays could be in the firing line.\nGood job Bianca Andreescu already won the Rogers Cup back in August, otherwise, we'd all be in trouble.\nAt least Cherry can sleep easy knowing he still has fans who will revamp their home life in order to support him.\nThere are stories everywhere.
