The debate over Don Cherry's firing continues to rage between fans who think he shouldn't have been fired and people who felt his comments went too far to be forgiven. Some of the attention has now been turned to a CTV host who shared her own thoughts on hockey in general. Jess Allen from The Social shared her opinions on hockey and Don Cherry. Now, Twitter users are calling for her to be fired over her comments.\nDuring the November 12 broadcast, the subject of Don Cherry's comments about immigrants wearing poppies during Remembrance Day was brought up, and Allen jumped in to share her thoughts not just about Don Cherry, but hockey in general.\nAllen said that Don Cherry being considered a Canadian icon and a symbol of hockey "struck a nerve" with her.\n"I don't worship at the altar of hockey. I never have," Allen said, "and maybe it's because of where I grew up and going to a couple of different universities. There's a certain type of person in my mind, in my experience, who does."\nAllen continued saying, "And they all tended to be white boys who weren't, let's say, very nice. They were not generally thoughtful. They were often bullies."\nAllen continued by pointing out that it can cost a lot of money to sign a kid up for junior hockey, saying, "Their parents were able to afford to put them, you know, spend $5,000 a year on minor hockey." Allen suggests that the money would be better suited to travelling and learning about the world.\nShe concluded her statements saying that Don Cherry is a "representative" of the type of person that Allen is talking about. Allen acknowledged that Cherry has "done some good things" but added, "Whether he's charming or not, but he's still a bigot and a misogynist."\nDon Cherry has denied that he was talking about immigrants during his rant about wearing poppies on Remembrance Day.\n"I find it embarrassing that there's a big chunk of the country that is so upset about this. Hockey doesn't mean anything to me, I'm sorry," Allen concluded.\nAfter the segment aired, people on Twitter immediately began calling for Jess Allen to be fired, particularly for generalizing hockey players and singling out "white boys."\n"And here’s the double standard. The use of “white boy” is ok but “you people” isn’t. #FireJessAllen," wrote @DarylFransoo.\n"@TheSocialCTV will sit back and do nothing. Because everyone knows you can be racist towards white people with no consequences. Free speech is free speech until you mention people of colour. #FireJessAllen #freespeech," wrote @sallytoodix.\nAllen even responded to some of the tweets calling for her to be fired.\nAnd here’s the double standard.

Now #hockey families are the target. Certain type of person? White boys? Racial and social profiling of any color is wrong @CRTCeng #FireJessAllen— Bruce Holmquist (@BruceHolmquist) November 13, 2019\nWhat you did is no different than what Cherry did. You singled out a specific group of people and labelled them. In fact, you actually pointed out a specific race which is worse. If it’s a good enough reason to fire Cherry, should be no different for you. #FireJessAllen— Tyson Williams (@TyWilly11) November 13, 2019\nWe are not rich and my kids are not bullies. Thanks for insulting my children who love to play Canada’s favourite sport #FireJessAllen— kelly Crombie (@CrombieKelly) November 13, 2019\nSo, Don Cherry @CoachsCornerDC says "You people that come here" and gets fired but @jessieraeallen says kids who play hockey in Canada are "white boys who weren't very nice" and are "often bullys" & its perfectly ok?! #FireJessAllen #FireJessieAllen @CTV @TheSocialCTV #boycottCTV— Joe Boss (@JoeBoss) November 13, 2019\nDisgusting racist, sexist comments by a nobody on a CDN network.Complete hypocrisy at its finest. Don Cherry NVR said anything racist/bigoted & u can’t just control the narrative to fit your lies Shame on @TheSocialCTV for allowing this to air/ AGREEING with her! #firejessallen— Maleia (@gypsy_rebelle) November 13, 2019\nJess should be fired for her disgusting rant on white boys today who play hockey! #FireJessAllen #boycottthesocial— Lane Van Kemenade (@Lanevk) November 13, 2019\nThis is what happens when someone assumes they know what they are talking about, but doesn't have a clue #FireJessAllen— ian moore (@Ianm215Moore) November 13, 2019\nEveryone knows @TheSocialCTV is shitty Canadian TV, and they should all be fired, but @jessieraeallen really is the worst. Admits she knows nothing about hockey but classifies all hockey players and families as “white bullies”. I won’t be watching ever again #FireJessAllen— Jennifer (@jenbeattie2) November 13, 2019\n@TheSocialCTV Jess should be fire for talking about “white boys” and “we don’t appreciate learning about the world because we spend our weekends in arenas” 🤬🤬#FireJessAllen— Cindy Day (@cindymayday) November 13, 2019\nHey @TheSocialCTV , I'd love to hear your take on Jess Allen saying all hockey players are rich, white & racist. Is that how CTV views an entire segment of the country? #FireJessAllen #FreeSpeech— Chad M Parenteau (@CMPBand) November 13, 2019\nOther Twitter users used the hashtag to defend what Allen had to say on The Social.\n"Anyone who supports this stupid hashtag is a white, entitled moron who probably supports DC. WHAT Jess said is totally right. Y’all can’t be claiming reverse racism when someone’s comments hit a lil too close to home #FireJessAllen," wrote @bestoftiana.\n"Fact: majority of hockey players ARE white.Fact: majority of them come from white privileged familiesFact: #FireJessAllen tweeters are the SAME KIND OF PEOPLE SHE IS TALKING ABOUTFact: that was not reverse racism. You do not get to claim racism when you are the oppressor," wrote @Chantellectual.\nAnyone who supports this stupid hashtag is a white, entitled moron who probably supports DC.

Can you guess which one caused the Twitter meltdown? pic.twitter.com/7U7y6WU8cj— Paul Cote (@Rottenplanet) November 13, 2019\n#FireJessAllen oh no white girl said things about white people that every person who is not white already knows. Waiting for the non white people to comment let's just see white mom, white mom, white dad, white mom, white mo, italian?! Oh wait 4th generation Canadian still white.— Doojobbie (@Doojobbie) November 13, 2019\nIt would seem that #FireJessAllen is trending because idiots think that a woman discussing her own specific experiences growing up is just as contemptible as Don Cherry claiming that all immigrants are moochers who don’t wear poppies or respect Canadian veterans.— Dead Sea Squirrel (@the_ns) November 13, 2019\nIt's terrifying how vocal white men are when dumb shit like #FireJessAllen is a trending topic on here— 🎄Chris(tmas) Pine(tree) 🎄 (@josietay25) November 13, 2019\naww, alll the crybaby ass Don Cherry fans are butthurt and want someone else to get fired after crying about how unfair it was....Jesus this is funny #FireJessAllen— 🏴 The Manic Maple Syrup Theory 905🍁 (@905JadedNWeary) November 13, 2019\nDon Cherry was fired from Sportsnet after his divisive remarks.
