Jess Allen of ‘The Social’ has doubled down on her bigoted comments about hockey fans.
And, it seems ‘The Social’ is ignoring the outrage of millions of Canadians and is refusing to fire her.
Following her disgusting comments in which she said hockey fans were “white boys” who “weren’t very nice,” Allen responded to the growing outrage.
But instead of apologizing or retracting her comments, she doubled-down.
Sounding nervous, Allen tried to throw in some talk about her family’s history with hockey, but repeatedly mentioned her ‘lived experiences,’ effectively sticking with her comments and doubling-down on her terrible remarks.
You can watch Allen double-down below:
On Tuesday's airing of CTV’s "The Social" Jessica Allen said this about hockey players in Canada: “They all tended to be white boys who weren’t, let’s say very nice, they were not generally thoughtful, they were often bullies." #cdnpoli pic.twitter.com/MHXqXIxbDM

By refusing to retract her comments, Allen is making clear that she thinks the rules don’t apply to her. She thinks she should be able to get away with explicitly mentioning race negatively, while Don Cherry should be fired.
Even worse, The Social is letting her get away with it by refusing to fire her.
This is a disgusting double-standard and Canadians need to keep expressing our outrage at this total hypocrisy.
This isn’t going away, and neither are the millions of Canadians who are fed up with this garbage.
