One site that I'm going to call out in a few seconds apparently loves some click-baiting because someone over at Hockey Feed needs a lesson on libel. Here's the headline of the article in question, and I will link to it below despite my hatred for the click-baiting.
The basis of the article, which contains a number of spelling and grammatical mistakes, was about the two ladies filling out a quiz on a Montreal-based website that was supposed to match up people with the Montreal Canadiens player that best matched the answers given. Miss Morin would theoretically match up with Brandon Prust based on her answers while Angela Price should be matched up with her husband.
Instead, the results of the quiz matched up Miss Morin with Dale Weise while Mrs. Price was matched up with Brandon Prust! Both ladies found the results of the quiz humorous enough to post to Twitter where it seems that the writer at Hockey Feed decided to turn these funny results into something entirely different.
While I certainly have no vested interest in either player's personal life, both Miss Morin and Mrs. Price have every reason to demand this be taken down and a public apology made on their behalf. I'm no professional writer, but I do know the difference between right and wrong, and this was entirely wrong.
Wholly irresponsible? More like "Holy... irresponsible!"
Until next time, keep your sticks on the ice!
