After Pittsburgh Penguins player Matt Cooke was removed from game one of the Eastern Conference Finals for an illegal hit against a Bruins player on Saturday night, Jordan Kuruc, lead vocalist for a self-described Pennsylvania-based melodic hardcore band called Forbearance, Tweeted that he hoped Boston would fall victim to another attack like that of the Marathon bombing.
@jordankuruc: NHL is f****** rigged! Matt Cooke made a clean hit. I hope your city gets bombed again Boston.
Not long after sending the message during the game, users on the social media site began lashing out at Kuruc for his commentary. The outrage escalated so quickly, that just after 10 p.m., members of his band turned to Facebook to apologize on behalf of their lead singer, and then went as far as to say he was no longer a part of the group:
