Go ahead @Sportsnet... I dare you to call #BobbyOrr a racist.

I hope everyone cancels you.

I hope every asshole among you responsible for this ends up jobless and working at Kwik Kopy. #IStandWithDonCherry
 
Dear @RonMacLeanHTH this is how you are supposed to respond #Brutus
 
So glad to see my dad's hero on the right side of history. 😊
 
One if the greatest to ever play the game knows the truth. Don Cherry is not a racist or a bigot and what was done to him was absolutely disgusting.

If you don't agree, fuck off!
 
Y'all going to call Bobby Orr a piece shit too?
 
Cue the loons coming after Bobby Orr now
 
I already knew it, but Mr. Orr telling it is all I need.
 
I get why you "know Grapes better than anyone," but remind me how you know bigotry and racism so well, Bobby?

🏒 The Man....The Greatest to Ever Lace Em' Up, Has Spoken.
 
 
In reply to @OMFonWEEI
Thanks Bobby. The way the industry insiders piled on and took cheap shots is almost as sad as him not being on Coaches Corner anymore.
 
In reply to @OMFonWEEI
Don Cherry evaulating his core friends, this puts a huge gap between Bobby Orr & Ron McLean. And if I had to pick just one of them... well... you know. ~ peace
 
STAND UP GUYS BACK THEIR FRIENDS,
Weasels like MacLean buckle and grovel.
Tanks Bobby, you're all class.
 
In reply to @OMFonWEEI
All he said was that immigrants in Canada should respect the soldiers who made the country one they want to live in. I understand he could have said it in more politically correct terms but it’s stuff like this that got Trump elected, we’re sick of people being offended
 
In reply to @OMFonWEEI
That’s why Bobby Orr is the greatest of all time. One of the most genuine players to ever play the game. That’s a true friend as well. Wonder what @RonMacLeanHTH thinks along with @Sportsnet
 
In reply to @OMFonWEEI
Right on Bobby, Cherry is a True Canadian🇨🇦
 
In reply to @OMFonWEEI
I agree Bobby. I'm the son of an immigrant and my family settled in Canada more than 40 years ago. My family and I are proud to be Canadian. Don Cherry is opinionated, yes, but I never thought he was racist. Grapes is larger than life. He'll me missed at HNIC.
 
In reply to @OMFonWEEI
Pretty big deal when Bobby Orr jumps to your defence. Takes a real man to go against the grain. Good for you Bobby.
 
Any comment @Sportsnet or do the lefties have your tongue.
 
In reply to @OMFonWEEI
His knees are shot but nothing wrong with his spine. Unlike some...
 
I’ve used Orr as an example of someone that knows Cherry’s character better than anyone. This is the interview I expected. Maybe, just maybe Sportsnet will see they made a mistake and undo this brutal mistake. #HockeyTwitter
 
In reply to @OMFonWEEI
Bobby Orr a legend and pure class. It's time Canada started being Canada again. Thanks Bobby!
 
In reply to @OMFonWEEI
Note to @RonMacLeanHTH this is how you answer a question about your friend.
 
 
In reply to @OMFonWEEI
I stand with Mr. Orr. I feel very lucky to have been around when he was playing to be able to watch him on T. V. Unbelievable player.
 
In reply to @OMFonWEEI
My parents were immigrants, #iamcanadian, assimilation is the key...#support for @CoachsCornerDC
 
In reply to @OMFonWEEI
It is disgraceful. Don Cherry needs every single Hockey Player to stand up against #CancelCulture like Bobby Orr has, Then you'd see Grapes back where he belongs on Saturday night.
 
In reply to @OMFonWEEI
Way to go Bobby, grapes did deserve better. We failed him.
 
Listen to hockey legend Bobby Orr stand up for @CoachsCornerDC! Thanks for taking a stand and telling the truth, Bobby! #DonCherry #IStandWithDonCherry #DonCherryIsRight
 
In reply to @OMFonWEEI
That’s from the greatest 4
 
 
In reply to @OMFonWEEI
Attention @RonMacLeanHTH, this is what integrity sounds like.
 
In reply to @OMFonWEEI
That’s it Bobby! A man of principle who stands by his friends.
 
That's 3 players now who have come to stand with Grapes
 
In reply to @OMFonWEEI
It’s sad that someone gets fired for speaking the truth! It’s time Snowflakes grow some tough skin and suck it up! Grapes goes from player, coach tv commentary and now GOAT! Sad, very sad.... Just sayin

In reply to @OMFonWEEI
Well said, Im one of those people who did not buy a poppy this year. Don made me realize how wrong that is. It's easy to get lost in the benefits of living in this country and forget the past sacrifices of veterans.
 
In reply to @OMFonWEEI
hey Ron give Bobby a call
 
In reply to @OMFonWEEI
Could not agree more with you Bobby !
 
In reply to @OMFonWEEI
True Story! Bobby Orr thank you! Well said! Cancelled my sportsnet and now it's time for another one of Don's so called friends to pull him out from under the 🚌
 
In reply to @OMFonWEEI
You tell them Mr. Bobby Orr! 😊
 
In reply to @OMFonWEEI
I have raised 3 kids. They all played Hockey. One of them adored #Bobbyorr Shame on #BOBBY for supporting #DonCherry . He is a bigot and a racist. Take this from a white Vet who loves his country 🇨🇦 and supports his troops.
 
In reply to @OMFonWEEI
Should've stuck to sports.
 
In reply to @OMFonWEEI
Hey @RonMacLeanHTH this is what a friend does. While you are taking time to think, go ahead and ponder what it means to support a friend without agreeing with something they’ve done. Ask Bobby Orr.
 
In reply to @OMFonWEEI
We love "🍇 Grapes 🍇".
 
In reply to @OMFonWEEI
Good. Finally a top hockey player standing up for Cherry. #IStandWithDonCherry #DonCherry Where’s the rest of them?
 
Hmmmm, I think I will take the words of one of the most respected players ever to lace em up over the reporter’s with an agenda at the @TorontoStar @TheHockeyNews or @TheAthleticNHL
 
In reply to @OMFonWEEI
People are way too sensitive now adays
 
When Bobby Orr speaks, You Listen! Sick of all you fucking little piss ant keyboard warriors!
 
In reply to @OMFonWEEI
I hope Bobby Orr refuses to go on sportsnet if ever asked, stay loyal to Don unlike Ron. @TheLiberalSlap
 
In reply to @OMFonWEEI
Let's not forget people who wear a poppy and don't give a damm about our boys. Don sacrificed himself much like many of our fallen, ironically on remembrance day.
 
Bobby Orr is the greatest!!
 
In reply to @OMFonWEEI
That's what friends do ....not like Ron Maclean...good for #4!
 
In reply to @OMFonWEEI
Orr sums it up pretty neatly. Cherry is wrong in way he said it and that’s what most people remember. Don not current with social media and it cost him however people won’t forget his support for veterans
 
Bobby Orr jumps to defend Grapes !! #nhlbruins fans what do you think
 
100% Agree. And they did it on Remeberance Day! Can't get more deplorable than that Sportsnet. For all who have Sportsnet remove it from your package.
 
In reply to @OMFonWEEI
This is the latest reason why, “There’s only one #BobbyOrr
 
The legend Orr on the Canadian ICON Don Cherry
 
In reply to @OMFonWEEI
Don Cherry said Orr was a great fan of Tucker Carlson.🤔
 
In reply to @OMFonWEEI
Thank you for speaking up Bobby Orr ... Respect
 
In reply to @OMFonWEEI
Don's a beauty! A good Canadian boy. A legend. So is Bobby. Aged Grapes make the best wine. Sportsnet & snowflakes make sour whine...
 
In reply to @OMFonWEEI
He's an angry old man. Thinks highly of himself. Modesty is not known to him. He got lucky his mouth got ratings, because we like the picadillo of his rants. The fact he even existed on TV speaks more about us than of him.
 
In reply to @OMFonWEEI
Thanks Bobby 👍❤️🏒
 
Bobby Orr is a class act and always will be. Ron Maclean this is what you needed to say you spineless weasel.
 
That’s a big yikes, Bobby
 
Hey @RonMacLeanHTH this is how you stand up for a friend who's done so much for you, for hockey, for our veterans.

You never miss a beat. You didn't this time either nor did the producers because there was nothing to miss

You begged for your job but lost everyone's respect.
 
In reply to @OMFonWEEI
Thank God for Robert Orr!👏 On the ice and off ~ Bobby’s just a MAN among boys 👍
 
In reply to @OMFonWEEI
It’s very disturbing and disgraceful what they have Politically Corrupt Correctnessly done to Don I totally agree and support his view of Veterans
 
We ALL know him. How he was treated is indeed a disgrace. Good for you, Bobby.
 
 
In reply to @OMFonWEEI
Finally someone man enough to defend the legend @CoachsCornerDC Bobby Orr you are a man with class, integrity and loyalty
 
In reply to @OMFonWEEI
If Bobby Orr, the greatest Dman of all time says Don Cherry is not a bigot, who am I, and thousands out there that have accused, charged and already found him guilty of racism and bigotry, to argue!!
 
In reply to @OMFonWEEI
Don't doubt that Bobby, but he definitely has the tendency to come across as a bigot. He could have apologized for that but his ego wouldn't allow that. He can keep being generous, he just can't be on TV any more.
 
In reply to @OMFonWEEI
I believe this to be true. It's just another rush to judgement coupled by a billion dollar network's bottom line.
 
In reply to @OMFonWEEI
Who cares what Bobby thinks.
 
In reply to @OMFonWEEI
Welcome to Castro's Canada... Justin that is
 
In reply to @OMFonWEEI
It makes him even more lovable
 
 
 
In reply to @OMFonWEEI
 
In reply to @OMFonWEEI
Says the fellow old white man.
 
 
In reply to @OMFonWEEI
Ron McLean is a sellout!!
 
In reply to @OMFonWEEI
Bobby has earned the right to provide a trustworthy character assessment of Don. How you live your life and treat people does not go unnoticed by close friends. I honestly feel Bobby would have never commented if he believed this story had merit.
 
In reply to @OMFonWEEI
Bottom line is that Don Cherry is honest and said how he feels. There is nothing wrong with that. If you don't agree with that. Then that's your right. What a screwed up world we live in. It's not about immigrants it's about everybody. People. Does anyone get that.Just People
 
That's how a friend acts @RonMacLeanHTH when a friend is in need.
 
Too bad Grapes is a man, only ppl to get fired over mis speaking is men, vilified & persecuted.
 
Comments from another honourable man
 
One of the best saying it how it is. #DonCherry
 
In reply to @OMFonWEEI
Stop with the political correctness already
 
In reply to @OMFonWEEI
One white guys says another white guy isnt racist. I'm sorry but I KNOW people that were bigoted that I'm sure their buddies would stand by and say "they arent racist" if they were called out. he should have apologized IMMEDIATELY and said he meant all Canadians.
 
In reply to @OMFonWEEI
I agree with Bobby Orr - one of the greatest hockey players of all time.
 
In reply to @OMFonWEEI
 
In reply to @OMFonWEEI
Meanwhile in Canada, their version Joy Behar can call out white boys who play hockey being assholes across the board to no criticism...
 
 
In reply to @jessieraeallen
@jessieraeallen

Look another "white boy" hockey player to defend Cherry.

#firejessicaallen
 
🏒👊Even my lifetime Hockey Hero Bobby Orr, says Don Cherry said NOTHING wrong!! Thank you #BobbyOrr #4 👊🏒
 
In reply to @OMFonWEEI
Oh well, if another elderly white guy says he's not racist... 🤷‍♂️🤦‍♂️
