Evander Kane says part of the criticism aimed at him, is racially motivated.
I've thought it was because he's brash and many in the Canadian press and many fans, prefer their players come with an 'aw shucks' attitude.

"He did single out Twitter and social media as a place where he's seen a lot of really racist things said about him," Campbell said. "Things that people would say behind the anonymity of a keyboard that they would never say in public."

In a market like Winnipeg where Kane's off-ice actions will draw more attention than they did in Atlanta, fans have at times used Twitter as a way to voice their criticisms directly to Kane himself.

But Campbell warned that criticism has its limits.
