Terrible scene: A well-known journalist rejects a child who was living her dream
BY MARCO MARCH 6, 2023 (3:04 PM)
All this happens during a press conference of an NHL team.
As my excellent colleague William Nadeau of Habs and NHL explained so well, here is the nomenclature of this frankly very regrettable situation:
The reporter in question who turned around, flat out "flipped her off". He could have taken her under his wing, given her an unforgettable experience and possibly made a positive impact in her life, thanks to that day, but no. He decided to act completely inappropriately, and it's possible that this could have brutally destroyed her dream.
Some perceive the scene as outright bullying of the child.
This is a situation that is simply unacceptable, and we hope that the little girl will not give up her dream, because of the desolate gesture of the journalist in question.
