Brayden Schenn fake Facebook page causing an uproar
 
I wasn't going to post about this because when people started going crazy on Facebook and calling Schenn a racist, I knew that there were many impostors on Facebook pretending to be him (or his girlfriend, if you can imagine that), so I didn't pay much attention to it.

However, it seems as though things have gotten out of hand because Brayden has started receiving death threats over racist comments a poster has made, pretending to be him, and I think it sucks that he has been targeted in this way. One of the racist comments made by the fake!Schenn was, "If Indians don't want to pay taxes, then get out of Canada," posted right before their game 3 against the Raiders, and the haters started chiming in.

The Blades lost yesterday, and Schenn was held scoreless, and I think that all of this negative attention caused by the smear campaign might get to Schenn. People seem to be wising up, but...

I took the link from outofrange (hope you don't mind!), and a Saskatoon radio guy had this say about it (it directly downloads a bit of the host's rant in regards to this matter):

Part of becoming a PRO is dealing with BS like this. No one is going to feel sorry for Schenn. He just needs to man up put it behind him.

Don't feel bad, the ushers at the arenas check for tomahawks so he'll be completely safe

Dealing with fake facebook or twitter pages is one thing...

Dealing with death threats as a result of it is completely different and criminal IMO.

Ziggy Stardust 03-31-2011 02:54 PM

Are people on the internet that gullible and stupid to believe Brayden Schenn would have a Facebook account and write crap like that? Good lord.

When death threats are involved it's potentially serious. This isn't some other stupid nhl bs.

People are ridiculous for believing that was his page in the first place.

He is going to deal with it, so don't act like he won't. It's not easy just ignore something that serious.

Lol @ manning up.

This is crazy. People can be so gullible. :shakehead

More info:

The Saskatoon Blades Hockey Club has requested a police investigation.

"I just know that last night somebody had come up to our coach before the game and mentioned there was a Facebook page that was allegedly Brayden Schenn's," Blades President Jack Brodsky told CKRM radio Thursday....

"We've talked to city police here and they're looking into it but these things are very difficult to trace and follow. What we'd really like to do is assure everyone that these were not Brayden's comments and Brayden doesn't have those types of feelings to First Nations people, nor anyone else.

Never said he wouldn't, I simply said people shouldn't and wont feel sorry for him. It comes with being a PRO. You know how many Death Threats Kobe Bryant gets daily ?

I don't think he gets near as many as you think.

I'm pretty sure you should feel bad for anybody who gets Death Threats... Just because they make more money than you doesn't make them less human.

Ziggy Stardust 03-31-2011 04:01 PM

In between death threats, how many messages is Brayden Schenn receiving requesting he demand to be dealt to Toronto?

Wooty 03-31-2011 06:16 PM

Young people on twitter

So it's very difficult to trace an e-mail address (a working one is required to create a facebook account...) back to its source according to the Canadian police? Hmmm... OK...

DryIslandBartender 03-31-2011 06:32 PM

Brayden will be fine once he gets into Los Angeles in the near future. This is unfortunate and hope they can track down the moron.

Yes.

Police investigation. Really? There is nothing illegal about impersonating somebody on the internet. There isn't even anything in FB's user agreement.

outofrange 04-01-2011 02:05 AM

It sucks no doubt about that but two more Blades loses and he's LA bound away from his creepy fanbase. Come to LA, Brayden!

There are laws about hate speech though and the impersonator made a number of slurs.

Yup if its through Facebook it should be easy to track. When Zuckerberg gets you to join Facebook they more about you then the FBI. Of course privacy laws probably prohibit Facebook giving information to the FBI until the guy actually try's or kills Schenn.

SHOULDN'T feel sorry for him? I'm sorry, but I do feel from Schenn. ANYONE who gets a death threat I feel sorry, outside of someone like Gadafi. I feel sorry of Bryant as well. It is wrong, it is criminal and anyone who is targetted for no reason by a criminal act should have compassion thrown his way, regardless of his chosen way in life. Just because he decided at five to play hockey and found out he's pretty good at it shouldn't somehow dictate that he is less deserving of human compassion than someone else.

Seriously buddy, you sound like a jack@$$
