Ryan Whitney, a former NHL player turned Barstool Sports personality, sparked outrage with a recent social media post about the Toronto Maple Leafs and Boston Bruins playoff series.

After the Leafs lost to the Bruins, Whitney shared a post featuring a questionable image, drawing criticism for its tastelessness and insensitivity amid ongoing discussions about hockey culture.
Leafs fans I feel for you guys. This ain't right.

Critics swiftly condemned Whitney's post, calling it offensive and inappropriate.
"I'm not a fan of the Leafs but what Ryan Whitney posted earlier today was way offside. That is not okay.

Sadly, terrible people are going to use AI for awful reasons. Block and report. Don't share, don't re-post."

"Just when you thought hockey culture couldn't get any worse, Ryan Whitney is here to remind us how comparable being forcefully r---- is to losing a hockey game.

Despite the backlash, Whitney has not responded publicly to the criticism. Barstool Sports, known for its controversial content, has faced scrutiny over the years for promoting divisive opinions.
