A former hockey player has sparked outrage with a racist post uploaded to Snapchat using slurs to voice his boredom while under quarantine.
On Wednesday, social media users shared a post from Cole Borchardt, 23, who posted a selfie with the caption, “Honestly hate how this country is quarantined nothing to do because of the dumb ch*nks f*ck em,” accompanied with an emoji.
Borchardt, once a high school hockey player from Burnsville, Minnesota, survived a traumatic brain injury as the result of a car accident in 2014. As a friend of Vancouver Canucks player Brock Boeser, who is also from Burnsville, fans of the NHL player also brought the racist post to his attention.
Will take care of it, sincerely sorry man.
